I was on MSN.COM reading about the best and worst marriage proposals and it reminded me of my proposal to Judy (the wife formally known as Sweet Tea.)
We were at the mall. I had to go to the Electrolux store because I needed some vacuum cleaner bags, and we were sitting in a pair of chairs waiting for my order to come up. I turned to her, held out an open box with her engagement ring and ask her, “Will you and the kids be my tax deduction?”
She hugged my neck and said she would, and I have to tell you, that was the best tax deduction I have ever had. We made a killing that year on our return because we got married on Dec. 31, in the Cherokee County Court House. And she has continued to be my best deduction for over 15 years – though the kids have gone their own ways.
How romantic was your proposal? I know you can’t top mine, but give it a try.
