Over the weekend I watched the movie P.S. I Love You.
Great movie. I really liked it. (anyone else see it? like it? hate it?)
Here's a little recap/spoiler-without-being-a-spoiler....
The husband in the movie dies of a brain tumor. His wife is having a hard time moving on, and on her 30th birthday she receives a message from him via a birthday cake and tape recorder. Turns out, before he died, he planned to have letters mailed to her in a specific timeline. Some of the letters tells her to do things (like go out with her friends, etc etc.) and he even plans a vacation for her and two of her friends. Throughout receiving these letters, she revisits old memories with her deceased husband. Its kind of bittersweet, how these letters help her move on yet almost hold her back.
Anyhow... Ryan asked me if I would be creeped out if he did something like that. My answer? No. I thought it was so sweet that he planned all this in advance and went through so much tedious planning to make everything work so smoothly. Although, in a way I guess it would be kind of creepy to receive the first "surprise" message from your deceased husband.
So, what do you think.... if your spouse knew they were dying and had planned letters to send to you after their death would you think it was sweet or creepy?
