Wow... did he make us other guys look bad!!!
A Man Flies From Australia To Chicago, Disguises Himself As a Reindeer . . . and Proposes to His Girlfriend
What happened to the good old days, when proposing to your girlfriend was as simple as taking her to a baseball game and paying a few bucks to have them flash "Will You Marry Me?" on the JumboTron? Apparently that's not romantic enough anymore.
--On Tuesday, 22-year-old Shane Fallon of Perth, Australia proposed to his girlfriend in a way that's so elaborate and expensive, that he just makes the rest of us look bad.
--Shane's girlfriend is 22-year-old Rae Taylor, and she's from Perth too. But she's been going to Wheaton College just outside Chicago. They've been together for four-and-a-half years, and four of them have been long distance.
--And on Monday, Shane flew from Australia to Chicago. When he got there, he rented a reindeer costume. Then he got Rae's roommate to bring her to a Christmas display in downtown Chicago, to pose for a photo with the reindeer.
--After the photo, he got down on one knee, took off the reindeer head, and proposed. He says she was shocked, but she said yes . . . and everyone walking by stopped and clapped and cheered.
