Definition of the word ‘propose’

The Boyfan decided to delay the full medical checkup which was agreed upon months ago. I was adamant that he keep to his words and refused any kind of changes. Seeing that he sincerely asked for renegotiation, I relented. That is when I realize one word means different things to different people…

“Is there any other way around it?”

“Ok. Propose”

“Huh?” He looked at me, puzzled. I might even see a tinge of fear in his eyes.

“Propose a deal lah. You think I wanna force you to marry me? Crazy”
