I expected it, but not on the day it happened. To understand this, you must first understand Woody. When Woody gets excited about something, he immediately tells people about it.

Outdoor ceremonies rock my socks! My favorite reasoning for loving them, when the weather cooperates, is the sense of calm they bring.
