A Very Short Engagement

Story Sent in by Deanna:

Daniel asked me to meet him at 12 Carver Ave. He said that one of his favorite places was there. I drove over expecting a restaurant or similar establishment.

What I wasn't expecting at 12 Carver Ave. was a bridal shop. I double-checked the address and started to call him on my phone when he emerged from the store with arms outstretched and said, "Welcome!"

Remaining in my car, I asked him, "What's going on?"

He said, "Marry me. I'm totally serious. You buy the dress, I'll cover the justice of the peace. Ready?"

I ran what he said over in my mind. While the offer was tempting, I said, "I'm sorry, I can't. I just got married last night, and again this morning. I have to save up for my next wedding at noon tomorrow."

I threw the car into reverse and pulled way the hell out of there.

  3. Wow OP, you missed out! This guy was a big spender. He was totally gonna cover the cost of the Justice of the Peace! He might have even sprung for a wedding reception off of the dollar menu!

    Also, it's my momdad's birthday! Everyone wish a happy birthday to Blue Blue!

  5. Green Green, now that's what I call a party.
    Experience has taught me that when a man want to leap straight to the wedding without the banging like rabbits part before hand it's because he has a micro penis that's not going to cure anyone's EVS.

  8. Taylor, I don't think you're supposed to send JMG the story of your first date with Chunky Horse *after* making a hit song out of it.
