Today we’re in Cozumel, and it’s a big day (in more ways than one)! We’ll be making our dives to the bottom of the ocean. And there might be a little surprise while we’re down there. It’s a surprise I’ve been working on for quite some time. If everything goes according to plan, we’ll be making two dives. The first one will just be a regular ole dive. Regular outside of the fact that it will be incredible Cozumel Diving! The second dive won’t be as regular. It will be a little bit special…
At the end of the second dive I plan on getting down on one knee at the bottom of the ocean and asking Jessica if she’ll marry me. Since I can’t talk underwater, I’ll have a dive slate with me to pop the question. I will also have a fake ring that I got out of a gumball machine at the mall to present to her (don’t really want to risk losing the real one at the bottom of the Caribbean). She’ll get the real thing once we get to the surface. No need to worry, I will also have an underwater camera with me that I’ll hand off to someone else on our dive trip to take our picture as it all unfolds. So hopefully we’ll have documentation of the event. Since I’m posting this in advance of the trip, I have no idea how it will all unfold so it could be totally different from what I’ve laid out… but hopefully not. The funny thing is some of you reading this might know about it before Jess does!
I’ve provided an artists rendering on how the event could potentially unfold to clarify things a bit just in case your imagination isn’t very good (click for a larger image).
Since we’re out of U.S. cell phone coverage and internet access on the boat is SUPER expensive I’m not sure when I’ll get a chance to post how it all went. As soon as I can get to a connected computer, I’ll let you know her answer. Until then I guess you’ll just have to wait in suspense!
