Engagement

15 years ago today, on an auspicious date for love (9/9/99 - the word for 9 in Mandarin sounds like the word for "long-lasting" so is often featured prominently at weddings), I popped the question to Amy and she said yes.

In today's social media saturated world, proposals have become spectacles.  And I don't actually mind that, because sweet and clever and bold and public are a fun combination.

As for me, I went more low-key.  I won't rehash the details, but I had to grade my "performance," I'd give it myself an F.

But the important thing is she said yes. And, 15 years later, I'd still say yes to her.
