As I was walking down the street tonight on the way home, a young man (probably intoxicated, or possibly just really cocky) grabbed my hand as it was swinging at my side and asked me to marry him. I said, Not tonight. This spontaneous proposal by a stranger made me think of the last time that someone asked me to marry him. Once again, that person went down on one knee and took my hand and sweetly asked me to marry him. But that time it was a part of a scavenger hunt of sorts where people in each group had to do silly tasks and proposing marriage was one of those silly tasks. I'm starting to think it's just a little sad that I've only been asked by strangers for my hand in marriage. It's a good thing that I'm not really looking to ever get married, or at this point I might have said yes out of desperation!
