Proposal Via Children's Book Written By Groom-To-Be
User ppaul9, of Reddit, popped the question to his girlfriend using a children's book HE wrote about their relationship, which he later had illustrated, printed and put on the shelf of their local library.
In the story he is represented by a gorilla and his girlfriend by a giraffe, her favorite animal.
"I had her stumble across it at the library and read it to me," ppaul9 wrote. "When she got to the right page, I got on my knee and asked if she would marry me."
In the comments section, ppaul9 writes, "I told her I wanted to wine and dine her a few weeks ago. I then rented some books from the library early that week with the due date on the proposal day. So we had to go drop the books off before dinner."
When they were on their way to the library, he and his girlfriend always go to the children's section to find books for her nieces and nephews. Once there, he pulled out the book he wrote and handed to his girlfriend to read....in case you had any doubt, his girlfriend said, "Yes!”
Sure a heck more creative than what I did!
