This mostly meant that I would start describing little details of a movie until The Prince guessed which one it was. For example, I said "Okay this movie has a lady in it who wears too much blue eye shadow and fake eyelashes and she is more obsessed with jewelry than I am."
The Prince had no idea what movie I was talking about, so I continued:
"She has two pets who play the organ."
The Prince then guessed the correct movie, which, for the record, is The Rescuers.

The game continued. On one of the Prince's turns to describe a movie, he started to describe The Parent Trap. I protested his selection on the grounds that The Parent Trap, while definitely a Disney movie, is not an animated film. Just in case you're wondering: Yes, this can be classified as changing the rules on the fly. My mother insists that I learned such tricks from my father.
And right then, the old man sitting behind us jumped right into our conversation with a loud "But The Parent Trap is a really good movie."
The Prince and I burst out laughing and of course agreed with the man. The Prince thanked him for taking his side.
By the time we got to our stop, The Prince had grown a little frustrated with the fact that I was guessing every movie he tried to describe after being given one fact. He, on the other hand, was not guessing the ones I described quite so easily.
As we walked to the bus doors, The Prince was mid-rant regarding my "cheating" at the game. I suggested that "Maybe you're just gravely underestimating my Disney knowledge."
And then the bus driver lost his shit laughing at us as we walked off the bus. Oh, the joys of playing our silly made-up games in public places.
I realize that some of you might be looking for a Birthday recap today. In short, it was incredible. I am so, so thankful. The Prince and my family spoiled me rotten. My mom had a gorgeous necklace sent to me with the sweetest card that plays Cindi Lauper when opened. The Prince woke me up and walked me from our bed to a pile of presents (Philosophy gift set! Grouplove CD!) and had spent all night decorating our apartment in Disney princess swag and a ton of balloons. I thought that was all wonderful, and THEN he brought me a dozen roses and a new stuffed animal friend (Ella the Elephant) to work. One of the ladies I work with treated me to a delicious vegetarian curry lunch, and when I was done work for the day The Prince took me to an outstanding vegetarian restaurant for dinner. When we got home he revealed a "Chocolate Death" cake from our favourite bakery, complete with 23 candles. OH and my grandma called me, as she does each year, and sang "Happy Birthday" to me over the phone.
Yeah. Amazing. I am such a lucky, lucky girl. The entire day made me feel so loved.
