So, there are many things that Doug and I enjoy doing together (running is not one of them, oh well). Our anniversary is February 11. Given the date, we don’t really do anything big or crazy for Valentine’s day. As a result, we have the birth of my favorite tradition. Our Valentine’s day plan is simple (and can be done regardless of what day of the week, or the weather or anything). We have a “picnic.” We open a bottle of wine and get some KFC. This is pretty much the ONLY day of the year we get KFC, so it’s a treat. But then, there’s the best part. While on our “picnic” we watch the best movie ever.
Now, granted, I was 5 when the movie originally came out (Doug hates it when I remind him how much younger I am lol), but as I’ve aged, all I do is grow more and more to appreciate the brilliance of this movie. In fact, I could probably dedicate an entire post to memorable quotations. Actually, I could just recite the entire movie. In fact, I do recite the entire movie, as does Doug, which is why we’re probably the only people we can watch it with. Anyone else would probably kill us.
What’s the point of all this? I don’t know, “The Princess Bride” is awesome and if you haven’t watched it, go do so! I guess the point is also, February 14th is what you make of it. As long as your spending it with the person you love, doing something you love, then that’s all that matters. You don’t need chocolates, or fancy expensive dinners, you just need each other. Oh, and don’t think this can’t also apply to spending it with friends. Friends are the loves of your life as well!
I just wanted to post one more photo, that has no other relevance other than, it’s a bit of nostalgia to go with my 80s memories, and, well, it’s how Doug started calling me George.
Wow, I don’t think this post could be any more random. This is what happens to my brain on Fridays. I will try to not do it again.
