Are you going to propose to Cindy anytime soon?” Ben’s mother asked him. “I think you two make such a lovely couple.”
“You know what?” said Ben, “I think so, too, Mom.”
“So when are you going to pop the question?” Ben’s mother asked.
“I was thinking two weeks from now, right before we leave for the Alaskan cruise,” Ben said. “What do you think? You don’t think that’s too soon, do you?”
“I think that’s perfect timing, Ben,” she responded. “I’m sure Cindy will be thrilled.”
“But don’t say anything to anyone,” Ben said. “Only the two of us know and I want to surprise Cindy.”
“Oh Ben, I’m so happy for the two of you,” his mother said as she hugged her son. “And don’t worry about me telling anyone before then. I can keep a secret too, you know.”
