S: Paul's Epic Proposal Triad
BC: "Twyla, my love, you are so beautiful, and I am utterly and completely and entirely in love with you. You are everything I've ever wanted in a woman, and I thank God every day for the gift of being with you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you and serve you as Christ serves his Church. Twyla, will you marry me?"
1: It all started with llamas. Um. Oops. I mean... Love
3: and after the llamas there were... | GUNS.
6: of course, that wasn't nearly dangerous enough, so the next week...
7: Paul brought me to Mark. (Oh, and there was also liquid nitrogen.)
8: and goat milk ice cream
10: and liquid oxygen | and mercury
13: And lessons in Barbecue Variety Kung-Fu
14: Finally, the third big day arrives. Let's recap, shall we? Stage 1: Llamas. Guns. Stage 11: Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. Mercury. Barbecue-Fu. Thought that was pretty epic? Not even close. Stage III: Two bouquets of flowers, so they're never out of view. A Manual Transmission Hyundai Tiburon. Lunch at Bliss. Take the car into the country with people watching for speed traps. Christmas months early with a gift of written love. A full dinner theatre made up of friends and a chef-cooked supper. Rutabagas. A cha cha dance in front of my best friends. A canoe ride down the river to a bonfire. Fireworks. And then... all our loved ones who could make it gather as HE PROPOSES WIH A SHINY RING, AND FOREVER LOVE.
