News, but not the serious kind
Proposing marriage is not an outdoor sport
This guy decides to ask his girlfriend to marry him, so how does he do it?
- He gives her a $12,000 ring at home, with a cozy fire in the fireplace and a bottle of champagne chilling?
- He gives her a $12,000 ring at their favorite restaurant, over a perfect creme brulee?
- He puts a $12,000 ring in a helium balloon and takes it outside to hand it to her on a windy day?
Maybe you see where this is going. The balloon was last spotted drifting high over London.
Cripes! I’m surprised he didn’t suck in some of that helium himself and propose in a high squeaky voice! In our story, he says he feels like “such a plonker.” I’m not sure what that means, but it sounds about right.
