Hear this ladies!
Apparently all that stands between you and your fairy tale wedding are 300 sandwiches!
Meet Stephanie Smith.
Stephanie is currently midway through making her boyfriend 300 consecutive sandwiches so that he will, upon completion of the “Mission”, propose to her. She’s even been quoted by the New York Post as saying “Maybe I needed to show him I could cook to prove that I am wife material.”
No, no you haven’t just woken up in 1958 but this story surely belongs there.
This week, the story of Stephanie Smith and her website, 300 Sandwiches, has gained worldwide attention and gone absolutely ballistic, not only in the blogosphere but across the entire western world.
For all the wrong reasons.
Stephanie says that “One day, I made E a sandwich. He got so excited, he ate the entire meal without coming up for air. Then he made the declaration, “honey, you’re three hundred sandwiches away from an engagement ring.”
All evidence to the contrary, Stephanie is a strong, beautiful, intelligent, financially independent and successful woman. So her pledge to make her boyfriend (who it possibly a contender for the world’s largest douche canoe) 300 sandwiches in order to basically win his commitment, is hard to fathom and understand.
If my boyfriend, now husband, had asked me to make him 300 consecutive sandwiches before he’d marry me, I would have told him that he had 300 consecutive seconds before I made him unable to have children.
To help you understand though, it might be easier if you read a few examples of Samantha’s entries.
