I was at work on my birthday and was leaving early to treat myself to a massage. At about noon, my boyfriend called my cell phone and said that he wanted to bring me a birthday gift before I left. He told me that he was running late because of UPS and that he would be at my workplace in fifteen minutes. After half an hour, he still wasn't there and didn't pick up when I called. At that time, I was ready to leave work for a much-needed massage and was growing a little agitated. My desk was on the third floor, and I had a clear view of the visitor's parking lot and of the entrance to the lobby where I was going to meet him. Fifteen minutes later, I finally saw his car in the parking lot, but he still didn't answer his phone. It took him another fifteen minutes to call me and tell me to meet downstairs.
I then went downstairs in the elevator with my friend, and we stepped through the double doors in the lobby where he was standing. My fiancé' and I hugged, and he had this really weird yet serious look on his face. I asked him what was wrong. He gave me a kiss and proceeded to get down on his knee and pull out a cream-colored ring box from his pocket and open it up. He asked me to marry him, and I did the unspeakable: I started to giggle and say, "Are you serious? " I was in complete and utter shock. I was so in love with this man that I never would have guessed that he was really proposing right there in the lobby, in front of the three security guards and three employees. I finally said, "Of course I will marry you! " He got off his knees, we hugged and kissed, and he was shaking like a leaf. All of this happened with the applause from my fellow employees and security guards in the background. This was the most special day not only because it was my birthday but also because it was a total surprise that he proposed at my work!
