Gulp! She swallowed her own engagement ring
Woman’s boyfriend hid it in milkshake to propose; happily, the crisis passed

A lot of guys try to come up with proposal scenarios that their girlfriends will remember forever. So give Reed Harris credit for accomplishing that goal — even if it turned out to be in don’t-try-this-at-home fashion.

The idea was a variation on a common theme: Put the ring in a drink and let his beloved discover it. Harris did his part, hiding the ring in a Wendy’s Frosty milkshake. But, as he and his girlfriend, Kaitlin Whipple, told TODAY’s Matt Lauer Monday in New York, she ate the entire shake and never found the ring.

Harris and Whipple had attended an LDS Institute class last Tuesday at San Juan College in Farmington, N.M., where they live. Afterward, they and a group of friends went to a Wendy’s for Frosties. The friends were in on his plans and recorded what they expected to be a heartwarming proposal on a cell phone video camera.

oh boy


I never understood putting the ring IN something....like a shake for example, or even champagne....wouldn''t your shiny new ring come out dirty and sticky?! That would bother me - lol....

Hope she has an ultrasonic!

It''s so romantic that they had to wait for her to crap in order to make it official.



Definitely a story they''ll never forget! Funny!

That''s what I just said to James! And she''s got to tell that story a few hundred times! "Oh, how did he propose?" "Well, he stuck it in my food, I ate it, crapped it out, cleaned it up a bit and here it is!! Romantic, isn''t it?" Um, ewwwww. Betcha no one asked to try it on after hearing that story.

Ha! Good point.

Although, I''m so ready to be engaged that I''d be willing to crap out a ring if it made it happen faster.

What would YOUR answer to the question, "Oh, congrats, how did he do it?" be then?

eww that''s so gross! I watched the video and the guy was like ''Can you take it off, Meridith wants to hold it.'' He was joking, but that is so gross.

Can you imagine having to FIND it! Honestly, I would have to tell BF we''d have to use insurance on it and call it lost. I could not go searching in the toilet.

It happened on Tuesday and she ''found'' it Thursday. ewwwwwwwwwwwwww.

maybe try a different approach. Start swallowing HIS stuff, and tell him you will stop when you get the ring. I would go with small things... wouldn''t want to cause an obstruction. Of course, this might land you in the looney bin... alone...

Ahhahah!!!

Isn''t there an actual disease when you swallow stuff on purpose? I can''t remember what it''s called, but the concept sounds familiar.

I wish I could swallow his cell phone.
He''s so addicted to that thing he''d been down on one knee so fast!

Hmmm... if you COULD swallow his whole cell phone... I think he''d be on one knee anyway! I mean... that is pretty rare IRL!

Hahaha,

I actually saw this on the news at home one day with FF. All I had to do was LOOK at FF and he said "I will NEVER put it in food - don''t worry. ESPECIALLY after this..."

My mom''s first husband slipped the ring in a glass of champagne. She said that she noticed it before she even took a sip and that she thought it was ice. She said "Why would you put ice in my champ... Oh my goodness!!!" It certainly was "ice" alright... just not the kind she thought it was


But champagne is clear-ish and the sound of metal against glass is obvious. A milkshake is sooo thick and opaque and hearing it knock against a paper cup would be difficult... so I cannot IMAGINE why the guy would''ve thought that it would be a good food to put it in. But he got what he deserved for not thinking it through. Lol... well maybe not him... but SHE definitely got what HE deserved...


Too funny!

FF crapped the bed we shared last summer when we were in Mexico.
We were just a small step away from sorting poo!

Montezuma''s Revenge... he doesn''t normally make a habit of it.


Yeah.. we were so much more bonded after that.
