Familiar Ring

Are You Otherwise Engaged?

A Chinese woman passed out after accidentally swallowing an engagement ring her boyfriend had hidden in a cake. The man said he was inspired by romantic movies in which leading men hid rings in cakes and gave them to their girlfriends. Doctors used a catheter to retrieve the ring, but after being revived, the woman accepted the marriage proposal.

FOOTNOTE: Swallow dive.

Could it have been a carat cake?

amusing...if I put this in a novel I'd make it tragic and say she choked and died on the ring....and the guy would regret his romantic impulse ever after!

I believe I'd ask for a new ring. ;)

Some women are just a tad sensitive....(I hope she learned to slow down when she eats, at any rate!)

Quilly: Maybe the reason he wanted to marry her was because she..{doh!}

Never mind.

Can you imagine if she had chewed, she might have trashed her teeth!

"Swallow Dive!" David, you crack me up! And me thinks maybe EmmaK has been watching too much Seinfeld -remember George's fiance died from licking poison off the wedding invitations? Just a really funny story though overall. Keep up the great entertainment!
