Calamity of Misfortunate Events ~
Fortunately for poor Harriet, she was able to set herself free. Her new boyfriend had asked her to marry him. Then he tied her to a tree trying to convince her that she should consider and accept his unique proposal.
After he tied her to the tree, Herman got on one knee and said, “Harriet, I know we’ve only been dating one month, but my heart knows you are the right woman for me.”
Harriet was not the kind of woman to compromise her values and accept Herman’s deranged proposal. She said, “Yes, I will consider your proposal if you get into your truck and give me the necessary time to think about it.” Herman looked at the ropes and thought, “There’s no way.” Then Herman asked, “How much time do you need?” Harriet replied, “About two hours.”
Needless to say, Harriet did not accept Herman’s proposal after filing a police report with the evidence still attached to her.
