Happy Birthday, Keanu!

It appears we’re all celebrating Keanu Reeves today, so I thought I’d share some fun facts about him.

Fact #1: He’s married to Winona Ryder.

(someone yelling from the next room)

What? I thought they were…

(more yelling)

But there are all those pictures of them together!

(mumble mumble)

Oh, that was just for a movie?  What was the movie? Was it about a wedding?

(mumbles…)

Oh.  Well then who is Keanu Reeves?  He’s the one from that 90s movie, right?

(shouts from the living room)

I don’t know which 90s movie! That one that’s always on TV, oh you know the one I’m talking about! Your brother used to watch it all the time.

(The smack of a loud facepalm fills the room)

Are you sure he’s not married to Winona Ryder? I swear I’ve seen pictures of them together somewhere.

(the sound of a Lay-Z-Boy being brought back to its upright position…a door opening…then closing)

Oh, he’s always in such a bad. Anyhoo, just wanted to wish that Keanu man a happy birthday!
