THE MISUNDERSTANDING!

Saturday Centus’ hostess, Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent, provides a prompt each Saturday, and this week, in honor of Independence Day, she came up with a doozy!  At least she allowed us 100 words this week (excluding the prompt, which is in bold print in my contribution).  Last week, she only allowed 60 words!  I don’t know how she comes up with a prompt for each week.  Jenny, thanks for hosting this challenge each week, and thanks for coming up with the prompts. You sure know how to make us have to think! Be sure you go over to Jenny’s, and check out the other contributions to Saturday Centus.

THE MISUNDERSTANDING

As they walked on the beach, he told her that he wanted to wake up with her by his side.  She pulled away and ran ahead.  He thought of the embarrassment he would feel when they reached the pier, where friends and family waited.

He knew he couldn’t give up now, so when he heard the drone of the airplane, he hurried to her and casually asked, Oh say, Can you see that airplane?  She looked up in time to see the “Marry Me” banner.  She turned to him and shouted, Yes! I thought you were asking me to move in with you!

Thank you for your visit to my contribution to Saturday Centus.  Laurie

Laurie, this is so cute!

For some reason this felt like a real story...I can see a couple telling and re-telling this to children and grand-children!

"Did I ever tell you about when your Dad (Grandpa) proposed to me?"

Loved it.

Thanks for the smile AND linking up.

You're cool.

Had to laugh at the situational reaction. That was fun! Just imagine the smile on her face ... yeah! Good Job ....

This one was really fun! Love the idea of the airplane banner. Did he pay some pilot to fly overhead?
Also, great comment on the difference between a proposition and a proposal!

Best wishes,
