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,


"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."


"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."

Long pause.


"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.
