John- So, we really need to get you on my medical insurance
Me- Yeah, but not till January (aside- he can’t make changes until then, and also most employers require, for adding a domestic partner, that you live together at least 6 months first)
John- Yeah, I have to figure that out
Me- Send HR an email tomorrow
John- But in case that doesn’t work or something, what are those things people sign?
John- No, where you say that you only get your stuff, what you came in with..
John- Yeah, if you’re willing to sign one of those, we should just get married
Me- Yeah, of course
John- Just go down to the courthouse and all
Me- I want a ring, though.
John- Well. A cheap ring.
Me- Yeah, like the one I had before. It’s 37 bucks. I really liked it.
John- And I’m not wearing one.
John- Don’t go all girly excited on me now
And that is the story of the most underwhelming, yet exciting and unexpected proposal ever.
