how they asked
He called ahead to my favorite donut shop, East Main on Main in Long Island, NY and asked if they would write “will you marry me on donuts”.
The next day he took me there to get some breakfast and let me pick out 4 donuts. The cashier “dropped something” and switched out the boxes and we paid and walked down to the docks.
At the docks he asked if I wanted a donut and when I opened the box the donuts read “will you marry me” on completely different donuts. After the tears and of course the YES, my first comments were “those weren’t the donuts I ordered!”
