Agreeing with One's Wife on Superbowl Sunday
February 06, 2006
They say that Superbowl Sunday is the biggest day of the year for wife-beatings. There's simply no reason for that. It's easy to come to a common agreement if you just try a little bit. For example,Me:
"Won't all of this Superbowl hoopla be fun when the Saints finally make it there?"Mrs. theskinnyonbenny:
"That won't ever happen, and if it does, they will have long before moved somewhere else."Me:
"Well, it might. Someday."Mrs. theskinnyonbenny:
"I have a better chance of getting the Oscar for Best Actress than the Saints have of playing in the Superbowl."
"Well, there's a little better chance. The Saints are at least a professional football team. You, however, are not an actress."
Another pause.Still me:
"It's more similar to someone from Baker Little Theater winning the Oscar for Best Actress."
Mutual agreement abounds.
