    2. “Marry me?” used to be sorta romantic and clever when originally done in the sky, on a show, at a local play, etc. Now, it’s just annoying. Get a room – as the the kids used to say. The rest of the world probably doesn’t give a flying fig whether the question is asked, who the people involved are, or what the answer will be. Many think it’s faked for attention. (Yes, I know this was just a suggestion.)

  3. Per the 10:09 post about “tombstones”
