That’s His Big Game Plan

| Tulsa, OK, USA | Romantic | May 10, 2012

(My boyfriend calls me ahead of time to ask where I want to go on a date. Not having been to it in some time, I suggest the zoo.)

Boyfriend: *out of nowhere asks this* “Hey, you want an Altoid?”

(He likes ‘Altoids’, so I’m used to him offering me one.)

Me: “Sure.”

Boyfriend: *smiles, but doesn’t get the tin out* “It’s in my pocket. Why don’t you go ahead and get one out?”

Me: “Okay…”

(Thinking he’s just being playful, I reach into his pocket. There is no tin, only a fuzzy little box. My brain is slow to react, but then I realize what I’m actually feeling.)

Me: “I… I need to sit down.”

(There’s no benches close by as we’re in the African Safari section. So, we end up having to sit inside one of the tribal exhibit tents while he gets down on one knee, pulls out the box, and proposes!)
