My family has a few movies we grew up with that have made it into our adult collections. Dark Crystal. Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Labrynth. The Never-ending Story. The Princess Bride. The Last Unicorn. Star Wars 4, 5, and 6. When I miss my family, there's nothing like watching one of these movies while eating a big bowl of Neapolitan ice cream with crushed Fritos on top.
Years ago, I read the book that inspired the movie, The Princess Bride. It was funny and entertaining and a lot like the movie. But for some reason, the only part I really remember from the book was where the author skips over a part because he says all it shows is some lady packing her hats for a trip. I decided it was time to read it again.
Here's the Teaser:
"There have been five great kisses since Saul and Delilah Korn's inadvertent discovery swept across Western civilization. (Before then couples hooked thumbs.) And the precise rating of kisses is a terribly difficult thing, often leading to great controversy, because although everyone agrees with the formula of affection times purity times intensity times duration, no one has ever been completely satisfied with how much weight each element should receive. But on any system, there are five the everyone agrees deserve full marks.
This one left them all in behind."
-pg 55, The Princess Bride by William Goldman
