Some of you may have heard of the Medieval Times restaurant with a dinner show and tournament. There are men--a king, knights, knaves, princes, and 1 princess. (Why is there always only one princess? It brings back memories of fighting to be Princess Leia.) It's exactly what you would love as a 12 year old. The horse riding is amazing. The stunts are really amazing. Not only is there some fun swordplay, they do stunts with the horses. This is truly dangerous stuff. I'd really like to know where they found guys who like riding horses when it seems like mostly women are doing that.
The knight assigned to our section threw carnations. He looked for someone who was ready to catch one and I stood up. It's nice to get flowers from a man.
Action, adventure, romance...
Ahh...romance. There's one thing that no one expected. Romance is funny.
I was sitting in a group with mostly women and one man. The prince had left his lady to fight dragons or Godknowswhat. The Princess stood in the middle of the arena saying, Where is my husband? I started laughing. Then the others right next to me started laughing. Then two more gave a dirty look and demanded to know, What's so funny? Why is she laughing. That made it just that much funnier. It's nice to have a good laugh about it.
