I Know Him So Well...It's Frightening
Just this minute, this happened. Observe how I am expected to be, first, a human encyclopedia, and second, psychic, where my husband is involved.
Alex: (Whistles "Jurassic Park" theme.) " Who's that guy that wrote all that music?"
Me: "You're thinking of John Williams, but I'm not 100% sure he was the Jurassic Park composer." (note--he was.)
Alex: "Yeah, but I was thinking of "Indiana Jones." You shoulda known that."
Me: (Incredulously) You were thinking of "Indiana Jones" (I hum the beginning of the "Indiana Jones" theme), but you were WHISTLING the "Jurassic Park" theme. (I hum the beginning of the "Jurassic Park" theme) And I'm supposed to know what you mean inside your head."
Alex: "Yes. You're smart like that. Google "Jurassic Park" and see who did the music."
Me: "I'm pretty sure it was Williams, just not 100%....there it is. John Williams."
Alex: " See? I told you so."
Me: "YOU DID NOT!" (Lets out the 4,789,542nd exasperated sigh of my marriage.)
Alex: "You married me."
