How do you feel about public proposals? Personally, I find them at the same time kind of unnerving and sometimes lovely. The fact is, you're putting the person you're proposing to in a pretty difficult situation. How do you say anything other than an immediate and ecstatic yes in that moment?
But hopefully for the people who take that route, the question of yes or no is already long decided. It's just about making the proposal in a special way.
Last night I saw this great clip of one such proposal. The occasion is a 'rap battle' -- two teams, facing off to show who has the madder skills at wordplay. (To be clear, it's not rap music; there's no DJ or soundtrack. Kanye West does not appear. It's more like spoken word poetry.)
And as you'll see, the guy set the whole battle up to propose to his girlfriend in a very eloquent way.
