Out on my date last night we were at the Rex.<br><br>
For those of you (I'm guess ALL) who don't know- the Rex is the quintessential place to get live Jazz in Toronto. It's also a sleazy scummy dirty dodgy dive. It's a fucking hole in the ground. Dirty dirty dirty disgust .<br><br>
The couple next to us are loading up on drinks.<br>
The cheesecake comes.<br>
It has a ring.<br>
They're smashed- they're at the Rex- and he's asking her to marry him.<br><br>
To them: <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> Yes! Congrats! That's wonderful news.<br>
To eachother quietly: <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif"><i>wtf</i>?

Mine proposed to me at Pizza Hut.<br><br><br>
Still together after all these years.<br><br>
My point being, the location and ambiance aren't important to everyone. For some, those things are secondary to the just being together.<br><br>
Granted, we were college age. Makes a difference.

So now if things work out with this girl you totally have to propose at the Rex! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I think that sounds sweet! I'd prefer that if it had to be done in public. I'm a lot more comfortable in a place like that than a super fancy kinda place. Maybe they met there or something.

It could mean a lot for another reason -- first date, or just some special moment<br><br>
That kind of "thoughtful" means more than a big production.

Now see, the first time through that you had said the CHEESECAKE was smashed, and all I thought, "Wow, that IS tacky. . ."
