The Imaginative vs. The Realistic

This afternoon I had a conversation with a friend of mine...a conversation I had been rehearsing for a few days now.

I really wish I could have videoed {I like the look of that word} the way I thought that conversation would take place...the few options in my head...they were good, I'll tell you that.

The actual conversation was fine, but so uneventful in comparison to what my imagination had anticipated...

It made for such a great juxtaposition in my own head today: the fictional version against the factual version. If I could draw, I would animate the scenes.

Did you see 500 Days of Summer? {Dang, I was frustrated at the end of that movie...which is an entirely different story}...this concept reminds me of this brilliant scene.

I have lived most of my life in the fantasy...and most of my memories are seen in the same way...just a little more romantic than what the reality was.

We all want Happily Ever After, I don't care what anyone else says.

I love that scene in the movie.
Confirms that I am not the only one who thinks that way...

In reality, I'm glad you had the conversation. That person had to have thought about it quite a bit since then.
