My sister in law just got engaged unexpectedly.
I congratulated her, and asked her about it. She said she was taken by surprise when her boyfriend proposed.
“I think even he was surprised that he asked me. It was the biscuits,” she said.
I said, “What?”
“I had made him breakfast one day,” she explained, “and while he was eating my buttermilk biscuits, he was just so overcome that he said, ‘You have to marry me!’!”
“Wow,” I said. “That’s quite a story.”
Then I asked, ” Can I have that recipe?”
