It’s official! Mr. 300 Sandwiches, aka Eric Schulte, is going to propose to longtime girlfriend and sandwich-fixer Stephanie Smith. In case you live under a rock and didn’t hear about the 300 sandwiches couple, let me explain.
Once upon a time, a Stephanie made her boyfriend Eric a sandwich. It was so good that he exclaimed that Stephanie was “300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring”. Stephanie accepted the challenge and thus, the blog 300 Sandwiches, Stephanie’s journey to the ring, and lots of controversy ensued.
While a lot of people thought that Stephanie and Eric’s relationship and sandwich-making proposal was a bit…let’s say old-fashioned…it was hard not to be fascinated by the story. Was Stephanie really making these sandwiches just for an engagement ring? Did Eric really require 300 sandwiches before putting a ring on it? Was this just an inside joke taken out of context? Well, those questions were answered by Eric himself earlier this week. If you’d like the TLDR version, here it is:
He thinks his GF is great and of course he doesn’t require 300 sandwiches. It was an inside joke. Also, he cooks dinner a lot. Also, now he has a VERY large audience watching his every move and waiting for a proposal that is going to blow away his generous, thoughtful, and sandwich-extraordinaire girlfriend (and all of the USA). Nbd. That couldn’t be scary at all.
I feel for the guy. I mean, as he explains it, they have a relationship where they’re two adults who do nice things for each other, like making sandwiches and giving backrubs and cleaning the bathroom (volunteering to clean the bathroom is love, don’t tell me otherwise). The fact that their sandwich story got so blown out of proportion is probably not something they had hoped for, but hey — that’s how it is. Now that he needs to propose in the very most perfect most amazing way, I’m sure he’s sweating bullets. So…how do you think he should propose?
Here are some of my ideas:
Make the 300th sandwich for her, and pop the question (and the sandwich) when she’s least expecting it.
300 of her favorite foods, in a picnic!
300 kitty cats.
300 pieces of bacon.
Get Gerard Butler to don his “300″ gear and help him propose.
“Tonight we dine…not on sandwiches”
Obviously the first option is the easiest and sweetest, though I think 300 pieces of bacon is quite the gesture too. What do you think readers…how should Mr. 300 Sandwiches propose?
