Taking The Plunge And Stealing The Limelight
I am a romantic fool, I am. I love grand gestures, I love, love.
I read this yesterday, and rolled my eyes like a baton twirler on acid.
Over the weekend, a Chinese female diver won an Olympic silver, a fantastic achievement, a wonderful win that she will quite rightly remember forever.
whilst, she was receiving her medal, her boyfriend proposed to her.
Now, as I said, I love grand gestures, but can a woman just BREATHE? Can she not have her moment to receive her medal AND on a separate occasion been proposed to?
Genuinely, we don't have a limit on fantastic occasions that we can have. We have the mental capacity to be happy MORE THAN ONCE.
If that guy was my friend and he told me he planned to propose to his girlfriend on the podium, I would slap him and tell him not to be so goddamn selfish. He is taking HER MOMENT, and making it all about him.
I can imagine, ten years from now, she is reminiscing about her medal win and he pops up and says, "That was the day I proposed to you, remember? Remember?"
Now she may be over the moon that he has proposed, and I hope they will be very very happy together, but there is no getting away from the fact that, he took a moment, HER MOMENT, and took it away from her.
I think that is unforgivable.
What about you?
