Everybody’s doin’ the JOSLWH.

(Look! No Hands!)

so while suddenly remembering and gazing dreamy-eyed on  Thee Exemplar cinematic of such sweetly beguiling style that is The Notebook (seriously- i can’t believe I didn’t notice this and haven’t been obsessing over it days before now)… I noticed a curious thing…

It takes a cynical, salty anti-sentimentalist not to let out at least the slightest of sighs when hottie Rachel McAdams exuberantly jumps into even-hottier Ryan Gosling’s arms.  But do the producers think we’re sappy enough to fall for it over and over again?

Apparently so (and they were probably right)

Let’s call it the Jump-on-straddle-leg-waist Hold (or JOSLWH).  Allie and Noah LOVE the JOSLWH.  They love it so much they practice it in the sun, in the rain, in a lake… They’re pretty much pros.  I mean -it’s like the Baby and Johnny flying hold accept it’s a little simpler and they seem to actually nail it every time-  without excessive practice to the tune of “Hey! Baby” and a slow keyed intro to “Time of My Life” (and in my humble opinion- to their detriment).

So…do you and your honey practice the JOSLWH like these two young lovers?  Tell us- Would you recommend?

ok….so yes. Tim and & do enjoy doing this. I’m gonna brag on my husband and say after the first time doing the ‘JOSLWH’ (nice, erin) he told me he always hoped the gal he’d fall in love with would do it (this was put in his head by these scenes from The Notebook). The first time i ran and jump to him it involved a baseball, gloves and the river. after seeing how wonderful and surprising the act of sprinting towards him and jumping two feet into the air only to be caught by his huge manly arms…..

it’s wonderful. jus sayin.
