A Bang Up Proposal

| Romantic | July 15, 2012

(My boyfriend is in Tennessee, I am in Virginia, our friend is beside him, and we are on Skype.)

Friend: “Did you tell her what you said to me?”

Me: “Tell me what?”

(The “Mythbusters” opening theme comes on, and I turn to watch it.)

Boyfriend: “Babe. Baby. ERICA!”

(A commercial comes on.)

Me: “Huh?”

Boyfriend: “I’ve lost her to Mythbusters.”

Me: “I’m sorry, what were you saying?”

Boyfriend: “I was trying to tell you that—”

(“Mythbusters” comes back on, and something immediately blows up.)

Me: “Whoa! Baby, did you see that explosion!”

Boyfriend: “—marrying you.”

Me: “Wait, what?”

Boyfriend: “No, I didn’t see the explosion, I’m an hour behind and Mythbusters isn’t on yet. I said I told [friend] that I’m going to marry you.”

(We’re discussing getting married in 2015. We are contemplating setting off fireworks because it’s the closest we can get to explosions.)
