So, have you been wondering where Amanda is? No, I didn’t jet off to Bora Bora to date three guys because 1) I’m married 2) I’m not a fame seeking whore and 3) I work for a non-profit. That’s definitely not where I’ve been. I know you’re all missing my delightful recap, but the truth is I just didn’t have it in me to watch it on my birthday because it sucks the energy right out of my body. I watched the Bachelorette online with my pal JP and I saved our conversation and will post it maybe this weekend. It’s good times.
I’m here tonight to drop off some funnies from my dear Husband. The scene: I was sleepy when I got home from work after eating way too much at lunch at the Pizza Hut lunch buffet. After struggling through a pizza coma all afternoon, I needed a resty-poo. When I woke up we went to McDonalds for dinner because my baby? He loves him some Filet of Fish sandwiches. What the heck? What kind of baby did I make? At any rate, after naps I tend to suffer from a little foggy brain, probably exacerbated by all these hormones.
While we’re there, the following conversation occurs regarding, hands down, my favorite movie of all time, 1982′s Annie, staring Eileen Quinn and the incomparable Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks.
Me: Davey [Sister's husband] watched Annie with Sis.
Me: What? He did!
Me: Why wont’ you watch with me?
Hub: I don’t think I’ll like it.
Me: I watch stuff with you that I don’t like! Besides, Davey liked it! He said he liked the car chases!
Hub: Car chases, I’m so sure.
Me: *getting angry* What if my only dream in life is for you to watch Annie with me????
Hub: Then I’d say you have a sad life, if that’s your biggest dream.
Me: *sigh* [pause] But there *are* car chases.
Hub: *laughs at me*
Me: And thievery and kidnapping. And helicopters. It’s veerrrry exciting!
Hub: *head in his hands*
Me: You know what it’s like? It’s like that movie Taken. *wiggles eyebrows expectantly*
Hub: I’m going to Tweet that you just said Annie is anything like Taken.
So he’s not only funny, but he puts up with my nonsense. I think he deserves a medal.
Have you seen Annie? Isn’t it the best? On a scale of 1 to 10, how close is it to being like Taken?
