I Wonder If She Said Yes?

Yesterday at the airport- while we were waiting for Granny Gran to land- we noticed a guy standing a little way away from us with a bunch of red roses. Obviously he was waiting for a girlfriend or a wife. When I looked back that way he’d produced a sign- like the signs people hold up when they’re meeting someone and they dunno what they look like- that read “My Engel” (“My Angel” in Afrikaans) in elaborate and bright red letters, and a McDonalds burger box. It would seem he had an engagement ring stuck in the burger inside the McDonalds box- I saw someone who works for my client there and that was the murmur going though the crowd also waiting for arrivals like we were- I wasn’t sure if that was such a wonderful idea. . . but it got me to thinking why he would have chosen a Mickey D’s box- was it where they met? Did he dent her car in the drive-thru? Did she drop her ice cream in his lap on the way to her table? Or were they there for their first date maybe? And of course the more I thought about it the more romantic and sweet it seemed, rather than strange. I didn’t see the whole going-down-on-one-knee thing, but my client saw them a little later and said the new couple was very lovey-dovey and cuddly and she was blushing furiously so I can only surmise that she did indeed say yes. They’ll have a lovely story to tell to their kids and grandkids and at family reunions and anniversary parties and such- provided of course that they last that long! I for one- hope they hap livedly after ever as they suck off into their own little funset- and now tackle the drama of planning a wedding to top the proposal!

  1. What an odd story, an interesting choice for both place and style of engagement.

  2. aaawwww, thats so sweet. My hubby once sent me flowers at work – a huge bunch of roses with a little box containing a little ring tucked inside the flowers. That was sweet. And he did it just because, not for any reason.
