With this blog, I thee wed
There were a pair of funny engagement stories I saw this week.
A dude proposed to his girlfriend at a romantic Central Park gazebo, but after she said yes a mugger demanded their money. The robber apparently missed the proposal, because he didn't notice when the groom-to-be slipped the diamond engagement ring off his fiance's finger. The mugger did make off with $125 and the bride's Rolex.
That story's nice, but not as nice as the two geeks who got engaged after a complicated crossword proposal. A guy from Cambridge convinced the Boston Globe's crossword writers to sneak in clues indicating he wanted to pop the question. When his betrothed got to 111-across "Generic Proposal," the gig was up and he formally asked. Apparently excited at the idea of little geek babies, the girl said yes.
