The lesson from this proposal may be this: stick with your original plan. Reed Harris, a student in New Mexico, couldn’t wait until a Wednesday night date to propose to his girlfriend, Kaitlin Whipple. When the ring arrived on Tuesday, he impulsively decided to hide it in a Wendy’s Frosty milkshake. Kaitlin enjoyed her milkshake — and swallowed the ring! The ring, uh, passed a couple of days later, and yes, they cleaned it. All’s well that ends well, though — she said yes, and the couple has been making the TV rounds since their story made national news.
