Earlyrings

My friend TH
wanted to get married
it was his mission

He swore emphatically

I am going to marry this girl.

about every girl he dated.

Once in particular
to the girl he was dating
for maybe

  • a week
    • or two

He bought a ring

  • declared his intent
    • [ to everyone we knew ]
      • proposed
    • and
  • had his offer accepted

They broke up a few weeks later.
