Proposal & Sign of Horse Delay in Payment

The Proposal

I would like to introduce a film. Margaret Tate is the executive editor-in-chief of a book publishing company, Colden Books, who forces her assistant Andrew Paxton to marry her in order to avoid being deported to Canada. When the government investigates, the two are forced to spend the weekend with his parents in Alaska in order to sell the lie. The family suggest they could marry the same weekend, and they reluctantly accept.

They start to fall genuinely in love as they spend more and more time together. Because of this, during the wedding ceremony, Margaret decides she cannot do this to Andrew and confesses the business arrangement in front of everyone―including the immigration officer handling their case. She is then told that she has 24 hours to get back to Canada, and thus goes back to New York to pack her things. Upon doing so, however, Andrew shows up at the office and confesses his love for her in front of the entire office staff, proposing marriage all over again.

Sign of the Horse Delay in Payment Satisfactions

I read a book titled Sign of the Horse Delay in Payment Satisfactions a few days ago. Written by a Japanese writer Otodake Hirotada, this book moved many readers to feel forced to read it and their mind. An author Otodake was born handicapped without arms and legs. When I first heard about this book, I got the impression that this book is likely to be about sadness and frustration of the author. However, it didn’t take long to recognize that my guess was wrong.

This book is made up of two parts: one is about the author’s childhood and the other is about college years. Even though he is physically challenged, he wanted to go to a college he had long wanted. His parents recognized his being disabled. However, they didn’t feel shamed about it. Their special patience and love made him a special man. He overcame his body and showed us patient and great mind. I think the book is worth the biggest attention and applause.
