If you know me very well, you know that You’ve Got Mail is one of my favorite movies (and one of the 4 that I own :)). My sister and I went to the Arvada Library today because Standley Lake Library had been closed because of a problem with their air conditioner. They opened back up today, by the way, but we didn’t know that until we got to the Arvada Library. Oh well. :-D
Usually, we don’t look at the videos at the library, but we noticed them today and looked through them a little. Becca found The Shop Around the Corner, which is the 1940 movie that inspired You’ve Got Mail. I just knew we had to get it and watch it tonight. I’ve been wanting to watch You’ve Got Mail, and I thought it would be a fun alternative!
So we watched The Shop Around the Corner, and I enjoyed it. It was fun to see the things that were similar between the two. Of course, there was no e-mail or Instant Messenger in 1940, so they wrote letters instead. It’s amazing to see how far technology has come in just about 60 years!
