Me & the GF had plans to meet some friends out on Saturday night, so I called my buddy Ryan & got him to invite us out to a bar called The Baseball Tavern, which just happened to be where we met on our first date (She was 1.5 hours late that night 3 years ago, but it turns out that she was worth it). He then feigned an emergency & I took the GF to the restaurant we ate at on the first date, Burton's. That was followed but a short walk through the gardens by the Fens, where I started my speech & got on a knee...
And before I got 3 words in she yelled "Shut Up!", started freaking out a bit, & crying.
So, I got to skip most of the speech, put the ring on it, & now I have a fiance. She was completely surprised & honestly, I was more nervous asking her Dad for permission.
After the crying, on her part, we met some friends at the bar we had our last drink of the night on our first date, The Lower Depths in Kenmore, & got our drink on. It was a hoot.
It would have been the perfect night, if I hadn't drunkenly slammed the tip of my thumb in the car door at the end of the night. Still hurts & I doubt the nail will survive, but its better than it was yesterday.
