Great Expectations, by Bruce Arbuckle

What did he expect before he proposed live on national television ? Would she jump with joy, throw her arms around him, scream happily, cry  (with joy, obviously), mouth the word “yes” , or just nod, speachless. He didn’t anticipate derisive laughter, or that she’d leave, spitting out the words  “no way!”
