Richelle: So, you boys didn't quite finish. We need to get this decorating outside done. Bad weather is coming to Chicago on Tuesday.
Ryan: There isn't that much left, just to hang the wreaths and get the final lights done. Have I told you lately---Richelle, you light up my life everyday.
Richelle: Um, that's a lovely thing to say...Ryan...I'm speechless.
Ryan:Good, then I will ask you this, too, while I have you enamored under these lights.
I Love you, Richelle, will you marry this impoverished millennial and live happily ever after?
Just then the lights go on and the deck empties of all the workers.
Ryan and Richelle move to more privacy on the deck.
Richelle sits on Ryan's lap. The dining room Christmas tree timer turns on...they are cast in sparkling lights while sitting in the dark.
Richelle: Do you really mean we are really engaged?
Ryan: Well, you haven't specifically said, yes.
Richelle: Yes, yes, yes....you light up my life, too. But, we have to keep this a secret until we go home to my parent's and you ask them.
Ryan: That's what I really love about my old-fashioned girl.
Richelle: Sh-sh, just kiss me.
You can keep up with the Impoverished Millennials on
