The Princess Bride

Last week for the first time my two older sons watched The Princess Bride. My oldest (13) thought it was ok, but my middle son (7) was completely enamored. For the last week he has been bouncing around fake fencing and quoting the movie. Saying things like, "I know something you don't know... What's that?... I am not left handed," and "Who are you?... No 1 of Consequence... I must know...Get used to diappointment." He puts on a little Spanish accent when imitating Inigo Montoya and it is about the cutest thing ever. I don't write about the kids a ton, but since he fell in love with the movie that inspired the name for this particular blog, I thought I would share it with you.

Inigo Montoya: Who are you?

Westley: No one of consequence.

Inigo Montoya: I must know...

Westley: Get used to disappointment.

No 1 of Consequence

I too love this movie, but I read the book first. A wonderful experience as well! and I totally agree that a 7 yo running around with a fake Spanish accent is absolutely endearing. my favourite line is when Inigo says to Vencini "I do not think that means what you think it means", accent included, of couse. Mandy Patinkin was a genius in that movie !!
