Today is my five-year-wedding anniversary with my darling husband. The traditional gift is WOOD. So you know what we’ll be doing! GETTING IT ON! AT A COUPLE’S WOOD-CARVING CLASS! I’m hoping to make some funky bear holding a rifle, because I’m all about bear on bear crime! If that doesn’t work, I’ll have some fancy toothpicks to bring home!
Above is the video of my husband proposing to me at a Seattle Storm Game in 2004. He had lured me to the game by saying that it was Storm BBQ tool night, meaning that the first few hundred people would receive commemorative BBQ tools and he needed to have it. And because we were supposed to go to a fancy dinner later and I had never ever been to a professional basketball game, I wore heels, stockings, and a dress with slits on the side. Business cas!
Before the game started, a woman picked me out of the audience to play a game called, “Hot and Cold.” I would be blind-folded and would chase the mascot Doppler around the court. The audience would clap and cheer when I got “hot,” and boo when I got “cold.” (How fitting a title!) When I heard this, I immediately told Mike that it would be perfect for him because running wildly in front of 8,000 people is something he does on Tuesday nights ANYWAY. She played off my response and said that it would be better for a girl to do it and I couldn’t argue with that.
So what you see is my playing a game that would lead to my then-boyfriend asking me to be his future wife and we all know how that turned out. I recorded this from the DVD so you’ll have to turn up the volume. Or you could just mute it and be amazed at my dress apparently designed by the rapper Nelly because GOOD GRACIOUS ASS IS BODACIOUS. Oh 2004 body, you were good to me.
Happy anniversary babe!
