Here's how it went down. I was standing at my computer and he was kept putting his head on my shoulder and well I wasn't really in the mood to be bothered; I was in the I need my space mood. After I disclosed this information he walked back to the living room only to return after a few minutes.
He then placed a card that only said "I love you more" in front of me. We don't really argue about the whole who loves who more thing cause I usually just say "Not possible". I flipped over the card and it was Jared's business card.
His response to my not so excitement was "Aren't you happy?"
Of course at this point I am was working on taping the drywall joints...
I responded "I'd be happier with the ring."
I could tell that he was slightly irritated with my lack of excitement. He was sitting there in what I would call his grumpy mood, so I did what I usually do when he's in his grumpy mood...I tackled him and tried to cheer him up.
He then asked if I wanted to see the ring and I answered with a "I don't think it's here", because let's be honest here I did look and I looked at his house and if it was at my house I would have found it.
He answered with a "Well your laying on it." So I literally got up and checked under the exact spot I was laying on, thinking how the hell did I miss seeing a diamond ring sitting on a blue couch. He laughed at me, and then told me to look under the couch. I felt like an idiot.
It was a totally random (or at least seemed random) proposal but totally perfect because we aren't romantic people at all.
After he proposed I politely asked if I could go back to my drywall job and he answered "You and your damn drywall...".
Over and out,
