When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

VALENTINE'S DAY
You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part. Sally has often referred to Linus as her “Sweet Baboo.” Her dedication to her man seems endless.

You're tired. You're cranky. You haven't been to the gym in weeks. Maybe you just need a nap. That's what David Lloyd Clubs thinks and is willing to take your money to "teach" you how to nap.

"The frantic nature of modern life means that few of us seem to get enough sleep, and if you're a parent, a good night’s rest becomes even more of a luxury," says the U.K.-based fitness club chain. "So we're created a new group class - group napping classes for exhausted mums and dads to help boost their mental and physical wellbeing."

The one-hour class includes a short stretching routine at the beginning and ending of the class. The 45 minutes in between is spent on a single bed with comfy sheets and a eye mask in a cool room that is just right for good napping. Napercise is "designed to reinvigorate the mind, the body and even burn the odd calorie." The class is currently sold out, but you can practice at home.
