My boyfriend is so ridiculous. During the week, he usually gets up before me to get ready for work and wakes me by kissing me goodbye before he heads out the door. This morning, I was mid-dream when I had this weird sensation on my hand. I jerked awake, half expecting a giant spider, only to see him on his knees in front of me, chewing his tongue (he does this when he’s concentrating real hard), trying to shimmy one of those zip-tie looking plastic ring sizers off my left hand. I looked at him and he immediately started cracking up.
I know the engagement is coming within the next few months. While he wants to surprise me with the ring (he has a few options), the day, and the way in which he asks, we have talked about getting engaged quite a bit. He teases me daily with the liklihood he is going to pop the question before the year is up: “Thanks for making dinner tonight, babe. You’re up to a 94% likelihood” Or, “Ooo, you forgot to mail our rent check today, young lady… down to 92.5%”. No, he is not serious, just kind of a running joke between us.
So, I suppose this means I’m getting a wee bit closer. Hope the same is true for all you wonderful bees!

He’s a resourceful one isn’t he?

Haha that’s hilarious! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you get your ring soon, and that the zip-tie measuring trick worked!

That’s so funny! The likelihood of proposing totally sounds like something my Fiance would say. I hope you get the ring soon!!

That is such a charming story, very excited for you!!! Fiance used to give me the ‘likelihood’ of our getting engaged, before it actually happened a la excel spread sheet…

Ha Ha!! That made me laugh! A great story for a Friday!! When my dad was alive we always teased him with the % thing-as in he joked/figured he needed to be @ 51% “good” to go to heaven. So if he was a little too mischevious we would tell him he was getting a little low of his 51%!! 😉

Haha, that’s hilarious and so cute of him! By The Way, my hubby does the same thing with his tongue and I’ve never known of anyone else who does that, lol.

That is too funny! I guess that’s one way to try and get a ring size without someone knowing! haha.
By The Way I don’t chew my tongue, but I do chew my cheeks and lips when I concentrate or get nervous/frustrated. Darling Husband is always asking “Why do you do that?”. I don’t even realize it.

Thanks for the sweet replies, ladies, I’m pretty stoked that he’s in a ring-state-of-mind.
