This text exchange happened last night after I’d gone to bed and CB was in the other room reading:
Me: I was just thinking about my celebrity list and I think you’ll be happy to know that George Clooney has gotten bumped for Matt Harvey.
CB: I’ll sleep better at night.
Me: I thought you would. I mean, this is a real changing of the guards. Clooney has been a staple for at least 15 years. When Matt Harvey was around 10. Which makes me dirty, I do realize.
CB: Your list will get younger as the people on it get older.
Me: But that makes me a dirty old lady. The others on my list are all respectably in their 30s or 40s. I’m not David Wooderson.
CB: You are wasting your list if there are people in their 40s on it. David who?
Me: Uh, Dazed and Confused: “I keep getting older and they stay the same age.” (I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist.) Also, it’s never a waste when you’re talking about Ben Affleck.
CB: Oh, sorry, forgot his name.
Me: I forgive you.
CB: Wonderful. Have pleasant dreams about Ben but watch out, Matt Damon might sneak into the dream.
Me: Never. I have standards.
CB: I hope so!!!
Me: Also, I take this to mean that you’d prefer I stop texting you from the bedroom so you can get back to not having this conversation from 20 feet away?
CB: It’s possible. I also don’t want to interrupt your list thoughts.
Me: This is why we work. Good night!
So over the weekend I decided to conquer my fears and agree to go snorkeling with CB on our honeymoon. Hours after this decision, we were laying on the couch watching tv and a commercial came on selling a dating site aimed at people over 55 years old.
Me: “I hope we get to grow old together.”
CB: “Me too.”
CB: “Or die in a firey blaze of glory together if we don’t.”
Me: “Totally.” (high five).
Me: “Maybe while snorkeling in the Indian Ocean.”
CB: “I’d prefer to make it just a tad longer.”
CB: “Maybe on the flight home.”
Me: “Oh, that’s long enough for you, is it?”
CB: “Well, the fun part will be over.”
Me: “I think we just wrote our wedding vows. This turned dark very quickly.”
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
