"moon and stars" crap

OK. There's some commercial I keep hearing where the guy is telling his girlfriend/wife that he'll give her the moon and the stars. We hear the "moon and stars" thing all the time. Why is that romantic? I mean, really! Anyone can say that, but it's not really his to give away, is it? I guess I never figured out why that was so romantic.

Maybe I'm too practical about things sometimes (my mother would laugh at that one!), but it you want to give me something, give me grocery money. Better yet, give me a vacation to someplace simple where we can just hang out and do what we want and go where we want. I don't really want a lot or expect a lot, don't need fancy vacations, cars or roses every week. I guess that's why the moon and stars stuff just makes me roll my eyes.

Although, a 1967 Mustang would also be a pretty nice gesture... :)

    I think a '67 Mustang would be THE most romantic gift EVER!!!

    I think it's romantic, especially since they aren't material things and things seen by all but not obtainable.
    One of the best lines in 'It's a Wonderful Life' is when George said he'd lasso the moon' for Mary. (or something like that).☺

    "What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You...you want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey! That's a pretty good idea! I'll give you the moon, Mary. ... Then you can swallow it, and it'll all dissolve see, and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of you hair ... am I talking too much?" --George

    LOL Dianne -- that's one of the lines that drives me crazy. I guess I'm just not a romantic when it comes to stuff. I told Tim about this and he felt the same way -- told me he'd give me Jupiter and Tuesday. :)
