We ordered and found a table and as we were eating, the following conversation unfolded. I am recording it here as I think there is a young lady who someday will get quite a kick out of it.
A (with his mouth FULL of chicken): Hey Mom!
M : Andrew. Finish your mouthful, then talk.
A (a moment later): Hey Mom! I know how I'm gonna propose!
M: Propose? To who?
A: The girl I'm gonna marry!
M: Oh really?
A: Yeah. See, after we've been dating a while, I'll take her to a restaurant where we both like to eat a lot. And we'll eat and then I'll get down on one knee and ask her and PRESTO! Done!
So dear daughter -in-law, whoever and wherever you are, please know that you are already in his thoughts and our prayers. We can't wait to meet you! In about thirty more years.
