Roger pulled up to the mail receptacle and fumbled around looking for the bill that was to be sent on its way.

As he turned to Marie, he gave her a half smile and said, “Let’s get married.” As casually as you would say the sky is blue.

Marie had a puzzled expression on her face, but said, “Sure. Let’s.” With a laugh about to erupt, she notice him pull out a ring box and half throw it at her.

They were on their way again. Marie opened the box to find a rather plain looking gold ring with a small diamond in it. She tried the ring on. It was a little too large.

Was this it? Was this the proposal she expected?
