That evening, with the new tattoo still raw, Glen bent on one knee in the couple's living room with a ring in his open palms.
"Michelle wasn't feeling well that night ... she was lying on the couch," he said.
"I came home and sat down beside her on the knee and said, 'Hopefully, this will make you feel better'."
Michelle said, "Are you going to ask me something?"
Glen tactfully replied, "Surely you can read."
Michelle said 'yes'.
"I said, 'Yes! But I don't know what I think about that [tattoo]'."
