- Wedding: October 2013
Will and Alicia had been playing Rock Band at his parents house, and everyone was having a great time. Alicia was so thoroughly impressed with Will’s sexiness and overall amazing abilities, that she decided that they should get one for themselves. The next day, they went to the mall only to find that the instruments for the game had been discontinued. Being right next to a jewelry store, they decided to pop in, as they’d spoken of marriage and such in the past, and Will simply wanted to learn about what she enjoyed in a ring so he could make sure, when the day came, that he got the perfect one.
After spending some time in the store, Alicia had found her dream ring. Will took note, and as he had been thinking of proposing for a few weeks, secretly bought and sized the ring the very next day. Knowing that Alicia dreamed of being proposed to at Disney World, he began trying to convince her that, even though they had spent 12 hours at the Magic Kingdom not a week earlier, that they should go to the park again, as his Uncle John had gotten ahold of some free behind the scenes Disney Tour tickets. Realizing that the tickets were pretty expensive and that this was our shot to see some real Disney magic, she excitedly obliged, and the stage was set. All Will now had to do was do the deed.
Unfortunately, when Will went to go pick up the ring the next day, he realized that the box in which the ring came was 4 inches cubed. How the hell was he going to fit a 4x4x4 inch box unnoticed into his pocket and into the Magic Kingdom? A simply solution came to him: He’d just tape it to the inside of his leg, under his shorts, no problems whatsoever!
The morning of his planned proposal came, and Will awoke nervous. He just wanted to propose already, so that they could both relax and enjoy their new engagement. Then Alicia’s phone rang. It was her Aunt, who was in town with family, and she thought, since we were going to be near her on our way to the Magic Kingdom that morning, that we should meet her for breakfast! What a wonderful idea, thought Alicia, how unfortunate her timing, thought Will. Regardless of the new situation, Will went to the bathroom with Scotch tape and a smuggled brick of a jewelry box, and proceeded to tape it to the inside of his thigh. Things seemed legit until he stood up, realizing that he would indeed have to waddle like a drunken sailor in order to walk at all. Trusting his fine taping skills, Will managed to get into the car and on the way to breakfast without any issues, except when Alicia mentioned “your shorts look weird” to which he replied “they’re new, just have to break them in”. He still can’t believe she fell for that. Who has to break in shorts?!
Upon arriving at breakfast and getting out of the car, Will realized that, with the ring so firmly taped to his leg, he would not be able to avoid suspicion for long, so he immediately headed to the bathroom to get the ring off. The pain that ensued, due to ripping off about 6 feet worth on Scotch tape from a hairy leg, was near unbearable. Lord knows what the other men in that bathroom thought he was doing when he yelped suddenly from within that stall. Nevertheless, Will stuck the ring in his front pocket, placed his phone over it so that the shape of the phone was showing through his shorts, and proceeded to stick everything else that was in his back pockets in his other front pocket. “I’ll just tell her that the back pockets are sewn shut and that I had to stick everything up here”, he thought.
Of course, Alicia remained oblivious as Will slyly maneuvered his way about the meal, into the car, and onto the monorail that takes you to the Magic Kingdom. Once there, Will hurried Alicia towards the castle, exclaiming that his Uncle didn’t have a lot of time to wait, all while looking for an unoccupied photographer to capture the moment. Will found one, right in front of the castle, and informed her to “not stop taking pictures”. Will then told Alicia he loved her, like really, really loved her, removed the ring and sank to one knee. She said yes.
