He Went to Jareds...

I originally was planning on posting about the fact that I spent the last two days taping drywall but you guys will have to wait to hear about that story because I have better news!!

It's official...

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,
A Engineer in the Kitchen
