Ring, Ring, Hello, Hello Lilly how are you? I am doing well Ira. I will pick you up at noon is that ok, yes Ira that is fine see you at noon, Good bye Lilly, Bye Ira. Oh, what will I wear? Ira loves me in blue. I know I will wear my blue dress. I am so excited I just know he is proposing to me today.
Ding dong, Hi Ira, Hello Lilly are you ready. Yes, good I have a surprise in store for you. What is it? Just wait and see. Ira opened the door to his Jaguar convertible and helped me in. After he got in the car he reached over and gave me a beautiful red rose. Thank you Ira I said. He put the convertible top down; it was a beautiful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky. As we were driving down the street the cool breeze flowed through my hair, the scent of Ira’s cologne was so manly yet so calming to my soul, and I could smell love in the air.
Well, Lilly we are here. Ira the Eiffel Tower what a surprise. Ira got out of the car and opened the car door for me. He then opened the trunk of his car and took out a picnic basket and a blanket. Right then I just knew this would be the day he ask me to marry him. Come Lilly I have the perfect spot picked out for us today. Ira spreader the soft blanket out on the grass and helped me down so gently on it.
I opened the picnic basket and Ira said wait, let me. He took out two champagne glasses, a bottle of sparkling cider, big plump red and green grapes, and a wedge of smoke Gouda cheese and a loaf of French bread. My heart began to race; I could feel sweat beading on my nose. I told myself to breathe. Ira opened the sparkling cider and poured our glasses. He handed me a glass and said Lilly I want to tell you how much you mean to me.
Over this last year I realized you are the only one for me. Let us toast to us. We raised our glasses and Ira said to Lilly my love, to the most beautiful woman on this earth. Our love will last forever. Ira, this is so special thank you. Ira reached over and gently stroked my hair and said, I want to ask you something Lilly. I knew it. I said to myself here it comes the big question. Lilly, Lilly will you…. Lilly, Lilly wake up. Did you hear your alarm clock ringing? Get up you are going to be late for work. Lilly are you up.
Yes, I am up and wide awoke.
