Let's Get Serious (Let's Get Funny Fiction)

What should you do when your boyfriend wants to propose live on air? Should you a) confess up front that you're already married before the cameras are in your face and risk losing him, because you never meant to lie but you never mentioned it either. On the other hand, b) try to avoid being alone with him (ever again) so that he will not get the opportunity to ambush you with a surprise engagement ring. Or c) play along with it and accept his offer of marriage and that leaves option d) which stands for divorce, which is what you should have done ages ago seeing as it's been five long years since you've actually seen your husband in the flesh. Speaking about the absent husband, just to complicate matters even further begs the question.
