Imagine this: A teacher who has been single for quite a while goes with her best friend, to a house boat to watch a movie. They walk in and see a man with long, curly hair eating out of a pizza box. He looks up, not caring that he has pizza sauce all over his face and he waves to her.
A few years later, they are in his parents' living room on Christmas Eve and he pulls out a ring, asking her to marry him.
They are penniless-he a physical therapist in training, and she a special education teacher. Together, along with a baby poodle, they face the world together bravely.
