The Color of Paradise/Rang-e Khodā/ رنگ خدا (Majid Majidi - 1999)
I had the best time on vacation last week end.
So fun fact, the last time I had a vacation, was about 3 years ago. I went with my mother and some of her Nurse friends to Newport Rhode Island.
3 days. I was going to be gone for 3 days.
My ex was supposed to be watching my dog. At this point, I worked two jobs, went to school full time, and was really in desperate need of a vacation.
While I was away, my ex left Ally (my dog) outside while some neighbor kids played with fireworks. Ally booked.
I had just sat down on the cabin’s bed, when I got the call my dog was gone.
I think melted. There I am, two states away, and my ex is telling me my dog is gone, and he doesn’t want to look for her.
Ally eventually ran to my moms house. My sister was home recovering from knee surgery.
I ended up hitting the beach once, and then running back to Connecticut.
That was my last vacation! So it meant a lot to me that my new boyfriend included my dog in the plans. It was the only way he could think of making the weekend stress free.
It was probably the nicest vacation I’v ever had
