Crackerjack Bride

September 18, 2008
By Iris Durfee, Park City, UT

For Blaine

When he proposed,
He used creativity
And tenderness.

Instead of the typical
“Will you marry me?” scene,
He brought a picnic.

For dessert,
He gave me Crackerjacks…
But not the ordinary kind.

He had carefully opened
The box…and inserted
A diamond ring
In place of the
cheesy,
Cheap
Prize.
