A couple got engaged on my tour this weekend. The full production was involved: ring in box, hand in his, down on one knee….
At Houghtons. At the long shared lunch table we have for our tour groups. Whilst eating said lunch with a group that, to be frank, hadn’t really gelled together at all.
She said yes but it was a really strange place for a proposal. Not romantic at all. I wonder if she’ll look back and regret that he didn’t at least take her away to the semiprivacy of under a large tree, just the two of them. I know I would. In fact, I did, but my proposal circumstances were much more dire than this.
Still, I am now officially renaming my bus the Love Bus.
