In Disney World this year Billy and I were determined to recreate a picture we took in the Magic Kingdom in 1997, ya know, back when we were babies. Since our fifteenth anniversary is coming up in August I thought this was a good year for it. Aw, we were so cute…
Here it is:
I can guarandangtee you that I was wearing super high wasted jeans. Also, Billy looks exactly the same. Weirdo.
The problem with recreating this particular picture is we just couldn’t figure out where we took it originally. The People Mover wasn’t high enough, the rocket ships were the wrong angle…we were stumped. We talked to several cast members and they didn’t know either.
Eventually, we decided to go with the People Mover and just wing it. Okay, actually I decided that. It was killing poor Billy not to find the exact spot.
I swan, at least once a week in our house this exchange happens:
Me: Oh, let’s just do it this way. It’s close enough.
Him: No! We have to do it the right way! It has to be perfect!
So what followed was a whole lot of hilarity as we tried to recreate it. He would say…okay, here it comes…ready, your hand here, my chin here, Castle behind us…smile now!
Except it was never quite right, so we ended up riding the People Mover over and over again.
Good gravy, my nose gets bigger and bigger the older I get. It’s like I’m Pinocchio, over here.
We never could nail it. Hours later we realized that’s because we actually took it from the Sky Buckets which were removed a million years ago.
Darn it, Disney! I hate that they took the sky buckets out. I loved those suckers.
They were such good places to make out. They were so much fun to ride.
So, the bad news is we didn’t get to recreate the picture. The good news is we found another place to make out.
Oh, calm down. It was just one little kiss on Spaceship Earth.
