A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about a prince and his maiden being married for twenty-eight years. Would you like to take a peek at their anniversary celebration? It was no royal festivity or anything, but they had some nice scenery and good food. Keep in mind that the maiden has a very old phone without a monthly plan (buys minutes), and she’s sharing the photos from it. She refuses to enter this century and get an iphone (or the like).
Here, the prince and his maiden sat at an outdoor patio. Beyond the umbrellas is a body of water.
Anyone like some meaty fried calamari? It complimented nicely with roasted red peppers and banana peppers.
This is what it looked like on the other side of those blue patio umbrellas. Some stormy skies loomed, but the couple worked their fairytale magic to keep those rains out on the bay.
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in
looking outward together in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,
Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939
Guess what geeky thing they did after dinner? They went into an eerie dark building where piercing loud audio caused the maiden to stuff her ears with napkins. She and her prince put on some dorky magical glasses in order to see better in the dark. When they opened their eyes it almost looked like they were floating through a large window that opened into outer space. Their adrenaline pumped from the wildly loud and adventurous space window.
Star Trek Into Darkness. Awesome.
They arrived home from their celebration feeling as if they’d just stepped off a theme park ride. Who knows what magic number twenty-nine will bring to their lives next year?
P.S. The summer sauna has begun for the maiden. No more eating at outdoor patios. The heat index has now reached 100 degree plus for the next four months to come. The maiden is now hiding in her tower from the humidity dragons.
