Fiance?

Today I received my very first proposal of marriage.
Now I shall insert tongue firmly in cheek...

A and I were zoning the inner Ladies' aisle when a
couple and their daughter were trying to find sandals. The
sandals that they liked were our most expensive. Father is
slightly annoyed with the choice and remarks that if they
want those shoes, they should get a job. Mother and
daughter protest, miffed yet amused banter ensues. Then
out of nowhere, he turns to me and askes, "You have a job.
Will you marry me?"

Heh. I'm dumbfounded and don't know what to say, of
course. The mother laughs and tells me not to pay
attention to him, to which I finally come to and manage a
chuckle. I can't believe that someone actually popped the
question to me. A complete stranger was so taken by my
work ethic, of all qualities, that he was moved to propose
matrimony. I can only smile.

In fourteen minutes I can have red meat.
