Especially for Kristina and other romantic souls that want
to know all the details about popping the question. --
30th of April is my birthday - as you all know by heart I'm
sure - but Kris would not let me plan anything on that day :
no birthday party, no Swedish or music classes, no stepping
by the pub, and not even a day off from work. The latter being
really outrageous and out of the question (I refuse to work
on my birthday !), I hit the town with Isabel and Liesbeth.
(Kris : "Shiiiiit, not Leuven of all places where I still
need to pick up the ring !!")
along, Isabel knew the cards (one day revenge will be mine !),
so when I started speculating about Kris maybe proposing to
me that night, she plainly told me :"Well Wendy, you know just
as well that chances are very small that he'll be proposing
tonight, and when he won't, the entire evening will be ruined
for you, so you'd better not hope for it because it isn't going
to happen tonight." (Sweeeet revenge !!!) Thank God Liesbeth
thought Kris HAD TO propose that night, otherwise she'd personally
kick his ass. (Take an example to that, Isabel !)
At night, Kris took me out to dinner at
La Cantina del Coronel, a very nice restaurant, but really not
the place where you propose to anyone. Shit. Then he even took
a plastic bag containing my birthday present from the car...
a bag ?! An entire, big bag for a tiny little ring ? Damn, damn,
this was really going totally wrong !
During dinner Kris would not stop trying to find out what I
thought my present would be... as if I was going to answer to
!!!! (He knew very well what I was hoping for, bastard, and
he knew very well that I could never admit to that, because
imagine it would have been something else...) Every hint I got
in advance (and there were very little as he did not want to
take any risk), could possibly apply to a ring, but the sheer
size of the package... I even tried : "You didn't by any chance
follow my sister's example and wrap it up in a bigger box so
that I would never guess what's inside ?" But unfortunately,
the answer to that was : "Can't you see that I've quickly wrapped
it up in a newspaper because I simply didn't have any time left
? Do you really think I would have had time for some wrapping
games then ?" Damn damn. Moreover, he suddenly wanted to
go and have dessert elsewhere... well okay... or have a drink
somewhere else... the point being that I still didn't get my
present, aahrgl, two more fingernails down.
And so we were off to...
the Wiering... AHAAAAA ! *ping ping* Good news, because our
very first kiss was in the Wiering, ahaaaa ahaaaaaaaaaaa !!!
But still, the enourmous size of that present... On the way
there I was thinking that maybe he would be original, you know
you don't always have to propose to someone with a ring, there
are other ways. But still...
In the little entrance way in front of the Wiering I could
FINALLY open my present,
mouhahahaahh paper torn away... what was inside... the box of
a navigation system ? *ugh*... But within milliseconds it came
to me : open the box, of course, open the box !!! And oh yes,
the box was completely stuffed with newspapers and other rubbish,
and somewhere between all that there was this little minuscule
box that Kris took out of my hands in a flash before he went
down on one knee. :)))))))) And then there were tears, I'm embarrassed to admit. :)
