My friend Ollie explains why this picture is totally not gay
"How much money does college cost in America?"
"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.
As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.
He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.
Some inspiring things he said;
"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"
"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"
"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."
"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”
Yes, anon. Yes.
shinji ikari asking the important questions
I probably had my favorite interaction ever with Flynn Rider today. He was just super sweet and funny. He was just chilling by himself out in Fantasy Faire so I went to see him.
I asked him about where Rapunzel was, he answered that she was out and about and that he should look for her. He then asked me where my prince was. I say oh, I don’t have one. AND THEN HIS FREAKING RESPONSE (and hand on the shoulder in the picture)
Well be patient. He is out there somewhere. Us guys sometimes have to get ourselves together before we find our princesses.
He also said to me, I really like your hair! Is it always this cute or just when you are meeting handsome men?
He has a thing for brunettes y’know…
