Joe had the whole proposal planned out. The exact time. Spot. Words. The whole thing. He knew exactly how he wanted it to happen. And counted down the minutes until it was time. Erin, on the other hand, was exhausted from work and couldn’t wait to just sleep. Most people would have gotten discouraged and changed plans, but not Joe. He knew it was time even if he had to force Erin out of the house. Tonight was the night.
As Joe rolled with the punches, he got Erin to agree to go out. Jokingly, she asked him to marry her. Joe froze. He tried to brush it off and change the subject, laughing. There was no way she could know of his plans, she must have just been joking around. Then she asked him a second time. Joe changed the subject again, trying to throw her off. How could she know? He would just have to play it cool and hope it was a coincidence. Although goofing around and having fun, Erin actually had no idea at all. She was just being silly. So later that evening when Joe got down on one knee, Erin blurted out ‘Are you kidding me’?! thinking he was just playing back. But when Joe asked her to marry him, she knew it was for real. It was way better than staying in and sleeping. And the best surprise she could have ever asked for. Joe just knew that the time was right and wasn’t going to let anything stand in his way.
