Me: Well here’s a serious question: If you could change one thing about me, what would it be?
Me: Just one
Leah: Two things.
Me: [fake sulk]
Leah: I really wish you’d lose some weight. We both should. Because I worry about you, and I know you haven’t been watching what you eat so much.
Me: Yeah. I know.
(a pause, while I wait for her to ask the reciprocal question. She doesn’t)
Me: I ask, because I’ve been thinking
Me: Yeah. And I guess, maybe there’s one thing I might change about you.
Me: Your last name. [produces a ring] Will you marry me?
She said yes, by the way.
Once she stopped laughing.
