She had been in a state of nervous excitement for the entire day, for he was coming over for dinner, along with his parents, to discuss the matter of their marriage. She had already announced that she would cook.
Dinner was wonderful, and the marriage was as good as fixed. He had loved the food, and when he told her that the tomatoes were heavenly, she had turned the colour of tomatoes herself, and insisted he eat more. He had eaten 3 plates of the 'heavenly' tomatoes. She was in a whirlwind of happiness and love, joyous at the way everything had turned out.
It was only later that she found out that she had forgotten to put salt in the tomatoes.
