So, you know what's completely awesome?
Having a friend like Bethany, actually.
You see, we were emailing back and forth about something or other one of these days, and she sent me this:
"Get in a good mood! How hard is it to just decide to get in a good mood, and then BE in a good mood?"
And then, right away, this:
"Uh, that was from Say Anything, in case you don't remember and think I'm just being bossy and sanctimonious."
To my shame, I had to admit that I didn't recognize that line, even though I liked that movie a lot. I told (typed, ha) Bethany: "I should own that movie!"
I decided to order it the next time I needed to add an item to an amazon order to qualify for free shipping.
Fast-forward to today, when the UPS man dropped off a little brown package for me. I racked my brain trying to remember what in the world I had ordered NOW... I couldn't remember ordering anything... hmmm...
I open the package, and in it find the Say Anything DVD. "Wow," I thought. "I really have no recollection of ordering this. Perhaps it's a new amazon feature where deciding to order something actually REALLY orders it for you!"
Then I actually looked at the packing slip that said "Yes, you really SHOULD own this movie! Happy birthday/Merry Christmas/Blessed Tuesday/Whatever. :-) Love, Bethany"
A much more reasonable explanation, and also a lot less freaky. :)
Thanks, Bethany! You're wonderful!
