Let me back up. Way up. I had read the book The Princess Bride back in college, before it was a movie. I loved that book. It's a wonderful book about true love, plain and simple. True love on a whole bunch of levels, but true love nonetheless. It is FUNNY. Not in a slap-stick way, but in a gentle, beautiful, sophisticated and glorious way. In the book, there is a character named Inigo Montoya. He is a self-taught swordsman who has had one focus since he was a little boy: avenge his father's death. A 6-fingered villain had killed the father in front of his young son, but had spared the son's life. Now, he has grown into that young man focused like a laser beam on hunting down and killing his father's murderer. Throughout the book (and the film), he repeats what has become his mantra, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." He says it very matter of factly, leaving no doubt in anyone's mind that the bad guy would indeed meet his death.
Inigo finally finds the man who killed his father after a 20 year search. Then he ruthlessly, coldly and efficiently executes the villain who has taken so much from him. If you've not seen the movie, please keep in mind this is a movie with a great deal of humor to it.
At the end of the clip, Mandy Patinkin says the meaningful line for him at the time, 20+ years ago was this; "I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it's over, I do not know what to do with the rest of my life."
I will be in the revenge business like Inigo, with focus, determination, planning, preparation, and execution. Looks like about a year for this fight, not the 20 that Inigo endured. But when it's over, you can bet your life that I'll know just what to do with the rest of mine!
