How I’ve Changed

When I met Will (13 years ago this week OMG), we were introduced to each other as “both liking movies.” Which is really the dumbest basis imaginable for pushing two people together, but since we still discuss movies on a regular basis obviously it worked.

One of the movies we discussed fairly early on was Much Ado About Nothing. It had come out just a couple of years earlier and we both loved it. Will quoted it at me: “Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably.” Benedick says it to Beatrice, and while I liked the quote I had been unimpressed with their romance in the movie (I’ve read a lot of Shakespeare, but never that one, so my opinions were solely based on the movie). Even though I thought Claudio was a dick, I related more to Hero, the wronged lover, than to Beatrice, squabbling with her enemy-cum-lover (and yes I just saw what I did there oops). Their romance didn’t excite me at all.

Now? I think that line is just about the sexiest, most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me, I love Benedick and Beatrice (even though I still don’t relate to them exactly) and I can’t believe Will put up with my immature ass. (It was a really cute ass, though.)

    Awww, that’s so cool! My husband actually used several quotes from that movie during his toast to me at our wedding reception – LOVE that movie :)
