Here’s how the proposal went down. Tammy texted me and Tirza to be at the Museum of Natural Science to meet her overlooking the dinosaurs (where we had our first date). While waiting for Tammy, I told Tirza that PBS Idea Channel had put out a special video and handed her my phone. Boy was she surprised to see me instead of Mike. (Of course the difference in background was a dead giveaway too.)
Let me tell you, if you ever watch PBS Idea Channel and think, “I can do that,” well, it’s not easy. Tirza and I love PBS Idea Channel, the host - Mike, his team and the fan community for all they do to make it such an engaging part of our lives.
The point of this video was to propose to my now fiance utilizing things we love, not to steal anything from PBS Idea Channel or present thorough research on the matter. And, choosing the right animated gifs is a lot harder than you think. Getting the timing right is even harder. I definitely learned a lot.
