Hurricane Joaquin can't stop Dan's love for Susie. Even a week old flu that kept him from laughing too hard couldn't stop his love for Susie. Dan was going to propose tonight and nothing was going to stop him.
We met up a week earlier to scope out the spot. He told me about his plan to fake a double date so that he can get Susie to meet him downtown. He had a specific place in mind along the water. He even made a video for her and also recorded him singing a song.
All this from a guy that is known for being a horrible planner. So really, not even Dan himself could stop his love for Susie.
So in the rain, while coughing, and nervous that his plan might fail, Dan pressed on and asked the question tonight.
