"Is She Knocked Up?"

So, Josie and I are engaged!

Surprising her was impossible, given that for two months, I couldn't even start a sentence with "Will you...?" without her googling "vera wang." In fact, the night I proposed, I had to hide the ring in my sock, considering she frisked me every time I met her anywhere.

A few reactions....

My brother - "Seriously, did you knock her up?"
Her father (re: the wedding) - "I don't want to be involved. Just tell me how much to write the check for... and don't forget, I'm retired."
My mom (after thirty minutes of "congratulations!" - ".., I never thought Harris would settle down again. Woman after woman after woman after woman ... no one could hold his attention." (Josie just laughed)

More tomorrow...

Rock On,

Aitch

So I get to be the first one to say congratulations on your blog? Fabulastical!

Oh, your engagement present? The lift to the Upper West Side that I gave you tonight.

Congratulations!

Harris said...

hey shaun and megan,

thanks

btw - Originally, I didn't have an exclamation point following the first sentence. SOMEONE insisted I wasn't showing the proper excitement.

I assume that now I am.

Rock on,

Aitch

Ah! I am so excited for you two! It feels a bit strange to say it, but I've suspected this may have been on the horizon for a while. Even though I've never met you before and Josie only once, the fact that she was willing to run 13 miles with me makes me feel indebted to her for life. (Particularly since I backed out on her in the end.) Congratulations to you both! Now we must get together for a celebratory beer!
