Well, I never actually thought about it, but she's saying, I'm like a bird, I don't know where my home is, but a bird does know where it's home is. But today, I bet that's a hike. But why do people make a nice little bird box? That could be their home, but the bird keeps coming back. It knows where it's home is. Don't go follow the seasons though. The show they might grow.

So if I challenge accepted. So we kind of semi hunted him down and followed him around the beat on pipelines because that's what she did. So you actually did follow him around. Like when you're on your PayPal on a Friday night like you used to cruise the Main Street of where it would be just checking paper out. Ted Bundy did, but I think it's part of your rope. It's going and make sure in the midnight on a Friday you just cruising around stalking potentially. Christian's daughter is on a plate now, watch where she goes on Friday night. Used to be. In order to be there, not sure. Anyway, so you run him off the road into a ditch. Not quite, not quite. But we met again at the local bonfire in the November and hopeless crossing. I don't know if that's still held there. And because we seem to see a fight like he was helping at the bonfire and it's just like, oh, yeah, pretty cool.

T, thank you very much for giving us a goal. The Christian O'Connell show podcast. No producer Tom has come back to the show this year with some great news. He's got engaged to his girlfriend. And he's got a great story about going to Japan where he proposed. And a lot of stories about proposing. There's the image of what you were building to and what you had planned. Sometimes life just goes, that's not going to be much pressure. Especially when you go somewhere where there's a lot of snow in Japan. So he's going to share the store in a minute. However, the thing that I'm interested in is like when you've got this ring and is this huge pressure and sometimes you can go on for days and you can't relax on the other side of the story you know the person is going to be going down on one knee with this ring. You've got to keep hiding it, moving it. Is it staying on you? It's suitcase and you're so worried about getting yourself down every couple of minutes because it's the money you've got to get it right. You need the ring, sir Thomas had a hell of a story even just hiding this room because I know whenever I'm behaving suspiciously, my wife is up. What are you doing? Now even if I just moved my bag slightly, she got what's in there. Just Spidey. It's like border patrol. So Tom, please tell us the amazing story about the proposal.

My mother brought it with her when she visited from New Zealand. And I arrived on the 23rd of December. The plan was to propose in Japan on the 1st of January.

No, luckily, Mario was on a night shift that night. So she waited till she went to bed and then kind of said, oh, by the way, I've got the I've got the package. Why are you talking like that? She's made a slight paralysis. And so I got a position of the ring on the 23rd. It got put in a ring box which then got put in a fabric sunglasses case, which I then folded into a sock and put at the back of my socket. I was terrified. So, and that was where it stayed until we got to Japan. I think did you have any hand luggage? I had to have the ring on me the entire time. I can't put that in the suitcase. I couldn't trust that it wasn't in like a bag that would go through baggage handlers or anything. Are you still carrying it in the sunglasses case inside the sock inside the undies inside the board? So I had to wait till she took the dog out for a walk. I transferred it to the inside of a headphones case. So it was inside a headphones case. However journey this ring spinning. And then as I went through security, I had to make sure that she went through security before our bags went through because I was terrified that you know how when you go through security.
