Trevor: Love reborn, sugarplum. It’s like a bad rash, you know? Can’t be stopped. Goes away, comes back…
Dr. Wyatt: Itches.
Trevor: But it’s damn gratifying to scratch. –Cupid
Match’s parents are out of town for the next two weeks, and we had planned on housesitting their place. I love his parents house! Not only is it huge, but they have a pool and a hot tub. I planned on spending my evenings when Match is at the academy curled up in his mother’s rocking chair (the one she’s going to give me when I have Match’s kids, hehe) with a good book and a cup of apple cider. Their house is up on a hill overlooking the valley and all of the trees are starting to change color for the fall. Have I mentioned that fall is my favorite time of year? If Match and I get engaged, I want us to get married in the fall.
People wonder if movies reflect real life. Hell yes, they do. I’ll tell you how. Both make it difficult for two people to find each other and fall in love. Think about it. All the barriers that get put in the way of romance which in movies is exactly the point. That’s what holds our interest for two hours. But in real life, love would hold our interest. Movies end when two people finally embrace, but that is exactly when life begins. Everyone is aching for magic. Everyone wants that moment in the third act when their eyes meet and the music swells, and they fall into their lover’s arms. But no one talks! No one connects anymore. Life is a very long movie, and everyone is stuck in the second act. This is what I wanna know…. why can’t we cut to the climax?! Why can’t we move right pass all the barriers and go straight to the part that everyone’s waiting for — the part where the guy gets the girl. -Trevor, Cupid
Friday Match and I went to dinner with a friend that he grew up with and his new bride. I don’t know them well enough to come up with clever nicknames, so I will call them Couple Wife and Couple Husband for the time being. Match and I have been wanting another couple to hang out with and these two are definitely it. Couple Wife is fantastic, she’s a complete hoot and so funny. Couple Husband is a bit on the quiet side, but he and Match get along so well and really riff off each other. In the first five minutes of meeting them, I could tell they approved of me. They’re expecting a baby in another 6 months or so, and they were teasing us about getting their baby a playmate. Continue reading My Life is a Movie→
