The Zoo with a Prize
Having dated for five years, Jackie knew that it was only a matter of time before Harry popped the question. This particular Saturday afternoon found them enjoying a beautiful afternoon at the city zoo. Excusing himself, Harry went over and bought a couple of sodas, a bag of popcorn and some Cracker Jacks.
Just like a little kid, she couldn’t wait to find the prize hidden in the box. After every handful, should would reach deeper into the box, feeling around for that ever-famous little plastic toy. All of a sudden, a smile lit up her face … she’d found it. Shaking the box back and forth while wiggling her fingers inside she pulled the prize from the box, anxious to see what it was.
A look of astonishment came over her face. This wasn’t a toy …. no, this was a beautiful diamond ring. Harry pulled her to him, and as he asked her to be his wife, he carefully slid the diamond ting onto her finger.
