I am a guy. I like guy stuff…like guy movies. But, I consider myself a romantic; and that includes taking in a good chick-flick. So, when we decided to use a pass to the silver screen showing of Nights in Rodanthe, I was all for it. After all, it was from Nicholas Sparks, author of what I consider the best love story of all time, The Notebook. I cry every time I see Noah crawl into his wife’s hospital bed. I’m a sucker for sap.  Watching Rodanthe was akin to watching bump...
