I’m a sucker for love. There, I said it. Ever since I was a little kid I always wanted what my parents had – to fall in love in high school, get married and have four kids. As much as I wanted to find love that early in my life, it took me another twenty years to have that family and to be with the woman of my dreams. Better late than never.
Looking back, I made a lot of silly choices to “be with the one” that didn’t really plan out the way I wanted it to. Those experiences will make for some funny stories I’ll get to tell my kids one day. Watching John Hughes movies and, even The Spectacular Now, is the reason why I enjoy watching high school movies. I get to have the chance to see how my life would have played out if I was a character in a movie – if my life was wrapped up perfectly in 90 minutes.
