My buddy, Tony called me last night to tell me what happened to my cousin, John, on 4th of July. Everyone was in the backyard eating, drinking, socializing and lighting up some small fireworks. My cousin, John who bought all the fireworks gathered everyone around to the blow up the first explosive mortar.
Before John lit the mortar, his friend told him to make a speech. As everyone is listening, John made a speech about how 4th of July is special to him because it brings together all the special people in his life for a celebration. In honor of the special people in his life, he calls his girlfriend to step forward with him to light the first explosive mortar.
Everyone around took a few steps back as she lights the mortar with John. The fuse was lit and everyone covered their ears watching the fuse get closer and close. Then after a much anticipation, nothing happened.
Stupid John, picks up the mortar pipe and holds it up at eye level to see the problem, at this time everyone was screaming at him to stop.
John reaches inside and pulls out a wedding ring and says this was what clogging the pipe. Then he proceeds to go down on one knee and purpose to his girlfriend, who, still in shock, manages to say “Yes!”
Now, speaking of surprise announcements…stay tune on Thursday when we make a special announcement ;). Here’s a preview.
