Do you ever find it funny to hear 2 different versions of the same story? Like when one person is telling a story and another person who was there says, "What?! No! That is not what happened, you're telling it wrong!"
This happens to me and Charlie all the time. Take for example the day that he proposed to me.
No, it wasn't this day. This was sometime in 2007.
Let me take you back to April 19, 2006. It was a lovely, sunny, Wednesday evening. I had gotten off work and we were heading out to a nice dinner at Carabba's (an Italian restaurant). We were celebrating being together for 5 years.
Me & Charlie June 2007
Charlie was in the driveway, with the hood up on his car, tinkering with the engine. I was telling him to hurry up because I wanted to go eat dinner and was tired of standing around watching him mess with his car. He finally finished and closed the hood and cleaned off his greasy hands.

And then he stood there for an awkward second and I didn't know what the heck his deal was. All of a sudden, he pulled a box out of his pocket and got down on one knee. I'm pretty sure I froze at this moment, like a deer in the headlights. And I blurted, "What are you doing?!" And he asked me to marry him. I would tell you what his exact words were, but I don't remember them because it was all such a blur and my heart was pounding and all I could think was is he really proposing to me in the driveway?! And so I just simply said, "yes." He stood up and helped me put on my engagement ring and then we went to dinner.
So romantic, right? *eyeroll*
Every time somebody asks me how Charlie proposed and I tell them this story, he always says, "What are you talking about? I wasn't anywhere near the car and my hands weren't greasy!" Um really, dude, then what were we doing in the driveway, picking our noses??
Feb 2011. Yes, that is our friend Gary's hand trying to pinch Charlie's nipple. That's a story for another day. And I bet I'll tell it better than he does!!
