Well, I'm bored, so I thought I'd tell the story of how I proposed to my wife.
It was January of 2009, about a foot of snow was on the ground. My wife is a hair stylist, so she didnt get home from work until 9:30 at night. The waiting was killing me, but at least it gave me time to rehearse, and make sure the kill switch I had just hidden under the dash was working.....
Anyway, after a 10 hour shift, she pulled in, dead on her feet, carefully walking through the snow in her high heels. I met her at the door and told her we needed to go to my parents house, my little brother needed a battery.
"Can it wait until I change into something more comfortable?"
"No woman we gotta go!!!!"
So we got into the old Cherokee, and off we went. By now the snow was coming down in MASS amounts. We round the bend going the back way to my parents house, where there is a nice baseball field a 1/4 down the road.
I started flipping the kill switch on and off, and it worked like a charm. The XJ started spitting, bogging, and commiting all sorts of ******ry and it seemed pretty convincing to me. I said "Aww not now, come on!" and once we were about 15 feet from the pull off, i tripped it for good, put it in neutral and let it die. We coasted in, i threw it in park, and told her to wait while i figured it out( as if she was just dying to leave the jeep)
I got under the hood, pretended to jiggle some wires, and told her to hit the starter. It fired up, i ran around to the inside,turned all the lights on, and told her to come out to the front of the jeep, told her she had to see something.
"Can I just look at it at home?"
"No. Come here!"
"Please, I really dont care! If its something I did, Im really sorry!"
"Dammit this is only gonna take a second!!!"
So she came around to the front, and I said "I have to ask you something"
Then I droped down on one knee in the headlights and pulled out the ring. She dove on me and we both went down in the snow.
Good story? lol couldnt have proposed without the ol cherokee!
