The other day, I was making dinner, and I remembered a conversation I had with my husband a long time ago, like Pre-Kids. Way back in the day when we actually watched movies past 9 pm without falling asleep.
The recollection forced me to stop chopping vegetables into the size of dust particles so my children would not spot them, and just for a minute I reveled in two things:
- My husband is the bees’ knees. I really have no clue what this means but bees are cute, for the most part, and so is my husband. So there you go.
- I am amazed I remember this conversation. I mean, I don’t remember where I leave my cell phone at least once a day. And this is when I am talking on the phone.
Anyhow, since the conversation was so fantastic, I decided to share it with you, my darling readers*. It is just that fabulous. In fact, whenever the husband annoys me because he keeps lecturing me about the way the bowls go in the dishwasher and also likes to bring up filing taxes just as I am slipping off to sleep, I will dial up this moment in life with us. It is just that good.
So, here you go. *drum roll*
My Husband and I Talk About the Movie Pretty Woman
Me: Ohhhh!! I love this movie!
Him: Uh huh. Can I just-
Me: DON’T. YOU. TOUCH. THAT REMOTE. WE. ARE. WATCHING. THIS.
Him: Dear, when you use your Satan voice like that, but also cuddle up against me I get all confused. WHOA, those are weird boots.
Me: What? You like those? Why? Huh? I tell you what, just don’t watch this part. I’ll let you know when the boots are gone.
Him. Is that Sandra Bullock? Why is she blonde?
Me: Shhhh. This is when he shows up.
Him: Who? Is that Brad Pitt. What? WHAT? Why have I been wrong for the last three exchanges here? Can you please just write about me in your blog with a little more, uh, polish? Ok?
Me: Yes darling.
Him: Hey, it’s the dude from Roadhouse!
Me: You’re not giving me a lot to work with here.
Him: I want popcorn. Do you want popcorn?
Me: Wait! The dental floss scene! This is when he really gets a peek at the real Vivian.
Him: What? What is she gonna do with dental floss? I thought this was Sandra Bullock? And he already got a peek. She needs to put on a jacket. Maybe a sweater.
Me: Dear. This is like the best love story ever. She wants the fairy tale.
Him: You know, me too. In fact, I wake up every morning with precisely that thought in my head.
Me: I want the fairy tale!
Him: Dear. She’s a prostitute.
Me: But WITH A HEART OF GOLD.
And then he got up and made some popcorn.
* It’s possible Momsie is having a slow day. This is all I could come up with.
