Have Cape, Will Travel
The date is September... 18.
He finally proposed, did he?
Um, did he pick out the date by himself?
No, they both did. She knows he is going to propose, she probably even knows how and when he will do it.
So why not just propose if everyone already knows about it? I mean, we're having a bridal shower thing this weekend for her.
Because he doesn't have the ring yet.
A ring is not strictly required for a proposal.
While they are waiting for the rings they are making plans. He's even ordered the capes.
Yeah, you know, capes.
For the, uh, proposal?
Or the engagement. Or the wedding. Or maybe both.
