my first marriage proposal

It was all very romantic. We were listening to One Thousand Reasons, all alone in the living room. That's when Athanasius Broten (more commonly known as "Scooter") looked up at me, with his big blue eyes and said, "Let's dance, okay Kendra?" 

I picked up the four-year-old Scooter and we "danced". It was about halfway through the song when he remarked, "One day I'll be holding you when we dance." 

"Oh really?" I said. 

"Yes. Will you marry me?"  

I swallowed a laugh. "Don't you think I'm a bit old for you?" 

"I'm old enough because I have a invisible beard that goes all the way to my butt." He said. 

"Well, shouldn't you have a job to provide for me?" 

Scooter stood up straight. "Yes, my job is to obey God." 

I told him no, because he's too much younger than me, but later on that night he proceeded to ask me to marry him again. By this time the whole Broten family knew about it and it became a big joke. 

Here's a pic of me and my lovely (not really) husband to be.

  10. This is hilarious. You are a great write, but you also had a little comic to help. The "invisible beard" comment will soon be a classic Scooter-ism!
