Last night was the opening night of Candlelight Tour, a first person event portraying the year 1855. I was unable to attend due to illness and spent the evening with Grace. Everyone else was re-enacting! Gracie and I watched Secondhand Lions and then decided a girly movie was the next best choice. After many options, she chose Pride & Prejudice (2005) the shorter version. She told me I had to sit in the chair with her, so as we were watching, her commentary kept running. The first ball scene came on and she was breathless! With a dreamy voice she side "I love dancing. It is so funner! I think it is more funner than playmobile! You get the guys and girls together and they dance together, it is so fun!" I was laughing quietly by now!
During the next dance scene where Darcy and Lizzy are talking during the dance she asked me: "Are people supposed to talk when they are dancing?" I told her that some people do and it is perfectly fine to talk while dancing. She said "I wouldn't do that, it would make me so nervous!" After this statement she had really big eyes! It was adorable!!
At the very end when Darcy is asking Elizabeth Bennet to marry him, Grace asked "Who do you think Mr. Darcy is voting for?" I was laughing out loud at this point and told her I wasn't sure. She didn't know either! I guess coming from a pretty political family, I shouldn't have been surprised by this question! Sweet memories!
