Five Minute Friday: "Yes"

Our Mistress of Ceremonies for the Five Minute Friday is Kate over at Heading Home.  Hope you link up with us and join the fun.


"Yes men."

"Yes to the dress."

The band Yes, which I'm not fond of.

"Yes" is the opposite of "no."

Actually, when I saw the prompt, the first thing that came to mind was a marriage proposal.  I know, sick right?

There's the man and his unsuspecting lady.  He's nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs, but he pops out the ring, gets down on one knee, and says, "Will you?"  I've only seen proposals where the lady says yes.  Some have ended up saying no later, but under the pressure of the crowd, she says yes.

I don't think I could do it.  First, no man in his right mind would ever date me, much less ask for my hand in marriage.  Second, even if he was that foolish, I don't think the pressure of the crowd could make me say yes.  My yes would be the end of his sanity and nails in the man's coffin.

So, I suppose I can't say yes to the dress.




  1. Hi from your FMF neighbour. I'm not a fan of the big public proposals for that very reason! I am a little sad that you don't think any man would date or marry you but I also don't really know you so you may be 100% comfortable with being single. I will say "never say never" though as I have been caught out too many times (including getting married). God bless (and I love what Iron Diva stands for!!)

    1. Thanks, Jo.

      I'm not 100% comfortable with being single, however, my comfort zone doesn't really matter. I have too many issues for any man to handle. Marriage just isn't an option.

  2. But you say yes to so many amazing things! You are such an inspiration! Thanks for your honesty. -Annie
