'Say Yes and Marry Me'

I saw an ad at the supermarket asking anyone who was looking for a way to propose marriage to call a number to get help doing it.  I did.

  I called and spoke to Jonah and Richard, and made an appointment to see them.  When I got there, I watched a pilot episode of 'Say Yes...' in which a man proposed by having some apes at the zoo put on T-Shirts that said 'Jennifer, will you marry me?'
 
  At this point, with tears in my eyes from emotions that welled up while watching the show, I figured 'Gee, I'll never top that one'.  I suggested that I could write a song, have my band (H to Oh!) play a gig and tell everyone that the crew was filming a documentary about we five musicians.  They said they already had a music related show, but would think about it.  I drove away planning how one of Lisa's Yoga classes could be turned into a proposal. hhhhmmmm.

 While I waited, I looked at 'The Life Network' to see what was posted there.                                                                        (see below)
Want to "pop the question" on TV?

Marry Me, a new television show currently in production for Life Network, is looking for real-life marriage proposals for its pilot episode. Whether it's proposing while dangling upside down from a bungee chord, flying over Niagara Falls in a helicopter or dressing up as a knight in shining armour with a white charger to boot every zany idea will be considered for broadcast.


Prospective candidates for the show can call 416-537-5004 or e-mail
marryme@microtainment.com.

  I got the call back from Jonah who asked me to check in with him the next week.  I called back then, and got the shock of my life.  'Yes, we'd love to do this' and 'can we shoot it next week?'  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  I asked if the following week would be ok, and Jonah said that would be fine.
 
  In the space of 24 hours I managed to secure a venue, confirm with the band that everyone was available (even Tina who lives waaaaaaaaaay out of Toronto), write the song, set up a web page with all the info and get the band to do a run-through rehearsal of the song (which I recorded and edited so we had a guide).  I called back Jonah, and we were on our way........
