He popped the question!
Sunday, December 20, 2020
So yesterday Henry finally popped the question. He took her to the park where they had had their first date. I'm sure it was very romantic. However, no pictures were taken. He should have known that his mother would want pictures!
Then he told me I wasn't allowed to tell my friends (all of whom have known this was coming for weeks, and have just been waiting for him to finally ask her), for fear my friends would know before his friends. What? Did he think my friends would *tell* his friends? None of my friends even know who any of his friends are.
In any case, he got to surprise his friend Dan (who had suggested he propose at a Thanksgiving meal in front of as many friends as possible - this merited The Eye Roll), which he wanted to do. Now he just has to call his father and tell him...which probably won't be easy, since he doesn't really ever talk to him.
And pretty much the entire church found out this morning, so it is no longer possible to keep it secret. But I have a feeling our associate pastor may tease him about it, which he will not appreciate. Oh well. The rest of us are very, very excited, and happy. Dd told his fiance she is just thrilled to finally have a sister, since she has always wanted one.
