Michaelyn and I are not very materialistic. It’s always more important to us, when giving gifts, to give meaningful gifts rather than expensive gifts. She didn’t want a diamond. Once, I gave her a plastic ring with a Jolly Roger out of a quarter machine at the bowling alley and asked her to marry me. She suddenly got a little more materialistic. Pffft.
So knowing she didn’t want a bigass rock, I had to do something unorthodox. We’re a long-distance relationship, so she introduced me to Doctor Who. I was instantly hooked as much as she. I love Matt Smith, but David Tennant is the straight up shit. We’ve since spent a lot of time on Skype watching the show.
Then it became our engagement ring. Behold! A message in Galifrayan is etched onto her ring.
Better than a diamond. :)
