I even liked most of the commercials. As you can imagine, I loved the one with "Dinky Darth" (as Joy calls him -- See previous post) the best even though they cut it down to 30 seconds. I was disappointed, but it was still a big hit with the group in the student lounge.
But as they were handing around the trophy, I noticed that something was conspicuous by its absence. For years and years, at the end of every championship sporting team, a particular question would always be asked, such as ... "Aaron Rodgers, you've just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?"
The answer was always, "I'm going to Disney World!" (Or Disneyland) And as I was thinking about it, I realized that I haven't heard that question in a few years. I wonder when it went away? Everyone would anticipate when it would happen, almost as much as the commercials. The fact that I remember it is pretty amazing. And as I was thinking about it, I thought how much I would like to go back to Disney World.
The next time, I had to bring my mother, who also had never been, naturally. This time we stayed in one of the moderate Disney hotels. (Yes, they do have them.) Even they had small customer service touches that made the experience special, like this elephant that was left on my bed one day.
As you probably can tell, I kind of wish that I could go. Maybe someday when I'm gainfully employed again and can put a few pennies away. I think the biggest adventure that I'm up for now is one where they put little terry cloth animals on your bed. And that's a nice thing.
