Antionne invited his girlfriend, Marie, on an early morning picnic in the French countryside. Antionne was very excited, for today was the day he was going to ask his precious girlfriend to marry him. After enjoying a cold glass of grape juice, he finally popped the question. In the excitement of her saying yes they lost the ring in the grass. After finding a child’s lost toy, playing some catch, and cooling down from the hot summers day, they decide to play a hole of golf. While playing, Antionne accidentally hits the golf ball back into their picnic area. The golf ball hit a box of cereal, knocking it over and revealing it’s prize: another ring. This is when Marie realize that losing the ring was all a trick, still excited Marie said yes again.
