Jerry was getting ready to take one heck of a leap.
He wanted to ask Harriet to marry him. But first, there were several things to handle. He feigned a business trip and instead went to see her folks. He intended to ask her dad for permission. Once that part was complete, he had to find a ring which his friend Preston helped accomplish in no time. The summer season was soon approaching, and Jerry wanted to do it then. Jerry tried to think of the best place to pop the question. Harriet was not a fan of fancy dinners and such treats. Instead, she loved to spend time on the beach or at the famous San Francisco waterfront. The two were excellent choices so that he would propose at either place. Jerry had to wait until the weekend when they both had time off work. He proposed they go to the beach, but Harriet felt like spending the day at the waterfront. Either place worked for Jerry. While they were walking and enjoying some ice cream, suddenly, Jerry stopped. He put the ice cream down, went down on one knee, and got the ring out of his pocket. All this time, Harriet was walking a few steps before him and then turned. She was so shocked but thrilled by surprise. Harriet said yes amidst cheers from onlookers. They spent the afternoon laughing and talking at the waterfront. One couple even bought them lunch. In the evening, they passed by their favorite marijuana dispensary. Harriet wanted some edibles to celebrate since weed was legal in San Francisco.
