(Due to work, I’ve been away from home for a week at this time, and I’m about to go home again. My husband has sent me an SMS, but it’s gibberish since he spoke in Italian while the phone was set to English. It also should be noted, we’re both Monty Python fans.)

Husband: *texting* “Carrier pot restive deer say Hannover afro high in offer to all duty free?”

Me: *texting back* “My hovercraft is full of eels!”

Husband: *texting back once more* “My eel is waiting for your return.”

Making A Mountain Out Of The Proposal

| Switzerland | Dating

(My boyfriend and I are hiking the Eiger Trail after a lot of sacrifices getting there in the first place. We have been together for 14 years and he is a bit of a commitment-phobe. I am not big on getting married, so the subject of marriage has never been discussed. We are both avid mountaineers and have been very excited for this hike, planning to climb the actual mountain next year. I want to sit down and enjoy the view but he insists on only stopping right at the base of the famous north face that we are both a bit obsessed about, and makes me climb on a boulder and rest.

Boyfriend: “Maybe it is the altitude that is messing with my mind but…” *pulls out a plastic ring that had sealed a bag with food for the hike and a small bouquet of mountain flowers* “… would you make me the honor of being my wife?”

Me: *speechless and then laughing hysterically* “Yes, but you better not have altitude sickness and not remember this tomorrow!”
