Here is my sentence, which does not even have one semi-colon!

“I was wondering, seeing as how we seem to get along so well and have so much in common, such as our love of literature in all its many and varied forms, appreciation of the beauty of a landscape seen from the hills in the golden glow of a late summer evening and an eerily similar sense of humour, whether, given the expectations of society with regard to a person’s personal circumstances when the bloom of youth has past and the propriety of intimacy between two people who are unattached, you would consider doing me the honour of marrying me?”



  1. Great sentence, Dom. I'm sure the asker would receive a resounding yes.
