Day 5 - As You Wish

I love the movie (and the book) "The Princess Bride."  

If you've lived a cave for the better part of your life
and haven't heard of this movie (and book by William Goldman)
it's about a grandfather who comes and reads
a book to his grandson who is sick.

The story is about the "true love" between
Wesley and Buttercup.
There's giants, and swordfights, and miracles.

And, there's the classic line:
"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya.
You killed my father.
Prepare to die."

I recently had a chance to visit the EMP Museum in Seattle, Washington,
and they had on display the famous sword.
And, the glove of the "six-fingered man."

I was a little disappointed to see what looked like
electrical tape on the handle...

I'm sure you don't find any of that in Florin...
