Question: Do these count as proposals?



This is the first of a series on Steph's wedding. This story take place pretty much towards the end of the evening. There is another story that comes right after it, but I can't blog that because Jaani hasn't yet given me an essential photo.

So, as a few of you know, I've had a few marriage proposals in my time. Unfortunately, they've all been from kids under the age of eight. (Mikey is one of them.) Anyway, Steph had just thrown the bouquet, and I didn't get it. More than that, I didn't even really go for it.

Adam said: "I'm surprised you didn't get the bouquet. I was expecting you to kill to get it."
Me: "Yeah, well, I don't even have a guy."
Adam: "That's because your standards are too high."
Me: "Are not. I only have 5 critera." (tall, Christian, employed or prospects of being so, mature, and MUST WANT CHILDREN)
Adam: "Yeah, that's too many." He pauses, then says, "You could marry me."
Me: "You're not Christian."
Adam: "I'll convert."
Me: "You're too short."
Adam: "I'm your height."
Me: "Exactly."
Allan: "You could marry me. I was brought up in a fundamentalist Christian church."
Me: "But you don't actually believe."
Allan: "So?"

To be continued when Jaani emails me a few photos...

Oh, I really hope not, that would be far too disturbing...

On the bright side, I'm most liekly to accept Mikey. And he's five.

Umm. Claire's right - both of them are scary dudes.

and a 5 year old...? Are you ok with the age difference factor?

But that being said, I wish you good luck finding a partner.. :) and i'll chant for it (even though we have different religious beliefs)..

Hi Winnie!
And no, I'm not in fact going to marry Mikey. But I'll marry him over Adam or Allan. (Sorry Adam and Allan).

Damn,
I thought I was anonymous..
But anyway, your posts about the wedding are funny..

Are you coming to alan/tennessee's wedding drinks on friday?

Sam-Is-Mad said...

It was the chanting religion that gave it away. Only buddists chant (or rather, only buddists claim to chant, other religions that do chant claim that their chanting is not chanting) and you are the only buddist who reads my blog.

As for the drinks etc on Friday, I'm not sure. I will see how I am feeling on Friday.

Yes Sam, I give you every permission to use artistic license when tampering with reality. Disclaimer: conversation in this post may not have been exactly transcribed, if at all true. I never said I'd convert!
LoL.
