My friend Mike asked me to help him set up his proposal to his girlfriend Tara. He took her out for drinks and had myself and two of his other friends meet at their apartment. Using his key, we let ourselves in, along with a tank of helium and about 300 red, white and pink balloons. We set to filling the balloons, and put all but five of them into the background of the apartment. Four of the five remaining balloons were stuffed with romantic missives about their memories together, while the fifth was filled with a message stating simply 'I love you, will you marry me?'. The first four were set on a path to their bedroom with a note card taped to each instructing her to 'pop me.' Apparently, Tara wasn't feeling like a drink (though she hadn't yet experienced the20wines delicious selection of boxed wines, to be fair), so we were putting the finishing touches on the plan when Mike called us to inform us she was making him take her home, and we just barely got the champagne on ice and sneaked out the door before they got back. Needless to say, she said yes and they lived happily ever after.
