One down, two to go?

Tomorrow night, my daughter's boyfriend invited me and my parents to take a limo ride into New York City with his parents to look at the Christmas tree and do all sorts of Christmas-y stuff in the city.

About two years ago, he asked permission to marry my daughter. I said, "I would be honored to have you as a son-in-law", or something nerdy to that effect. Then I wrote up a legal contract, in jest, enumerating all the conditions, i.e., a diamond engagement ring valued at a least two months of his salary. IT WAS ONLY A JOKE!!!!, but he framed the Notorized contract and it hangs on the wall of his apartment, or so I'm told.

Well, it just hit me this morning that maybe, just maybe, tomorrow night is the night that he "pops the question" to my daughter. He's all about surprises and that sounds like something he would do.

If so, I'd better bring lots of Kleenex, 'cause I'll be all teary.

Oohh, you're wicked! A weaker man would have RUN away after such a prank. That was a good test, though, to see if he was good enough for your sweet girly.

And OH wouldn't that just so cool of him? Now I can't wait to hear! Have FUN on that limo ride. You are getting so spoiled this Christmas aren't you? Go stock up on that kleenex!

Ooooh, we'll all be waiting to hear what happens. They'll probably hang the "contract" in their new home.

I would love to do that New York-y stuff sometime!

Sounds like fun things ahead! Have a very merry Christmas!
