>Will You Marry Me?




I asked my brother if he would marry me.


He said “YES” and we kissed on the lips because that is what my Mom and Dad do.


It made me feel like a queen. I decided to find Mom and ask her to marry me as well.


She agreed without hesitation.


For some reason it made her very happy to be married to me.



I just love being married.


I told Dad that night that I married his girlfriend. He seemed to think it funny. I was not to happy when I saw him kiss my Mom on the lips later that evening.
