In which my husband is wrong

Jason: It was like that guy in that movie, you know? Charlie Sheen?

Me: What movie?

Jason: You know! Where he's dancing around the the socks...

Me: Charlie Sheen?

Jason: Yeah! You know what I'm talking about, right? Where he slides into the room in his socks and the music is playing...

Me: Risky Business?

Jason: YES! Thank you! Risky Business.

Me: Honey, that wasn't Charlie Sheen. It was Tom Cruise.

Jason, skeptically: No, I don't think so.

Me: Jason. Seriously. It was Tom Cruise. That was like one of the most iconic roles of his career.

Jason, even more skeptically: No...I don't think so. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Tom Cruise.

Me: JASON! OH MY LORD! Of course it was Tom Cruise! It's like a KNOWN FACT. 

Jason, clearly not believing me: Well maybe.

The next day...

Me: So remember that thing I was watching this morning about the Nightmare on Elm Street movies? They were showing this scene from Nightmare 2 and the lead character was doing this really crazy dance. They compared it to the dance scene in Risky Business and I thought that was weird since we were just talking about that yesterday.

Him: That is weird. I still don't think that was Tom Hanks though.

Me: Excuse me?

Him: Tom Hanks. I just really don't think it was Tom Hanks in that Risky Business movie.

Me: No honey, it wasn't. It was Tom Cruise.

Him: Oh, well that makes sense. When you said it was Tom Hanks I was thinking that didn't make sense.

Me: Honey. I said it was Tom Cruise.

Him, skeptically: I'm pretty sure you said Tom Hanks.

Me: Nooooooooo...I said Tom Cruise. You said Charlie Sheen.

Him: I don't think I said Charlie Sheen, Stephanie.

Me: OH MY GOD JASON that was the basis of your ENTIRE ARGUMENT. 

Him: Hmm, I don't think so. I don't remember ever saying Charlie Sheen. Isn't he the one that was in trouble with the law a few years ago? He wouldn't dance around in socks.

Me, staring at him: Are you putting me on right now? Seriously?

Him: What do you mean?

Me: Nothing. 

Me: But you did say Charlie Sheen. And I said Tom Cruise. 

Him, clearly not believing me: Well maybe.

Some days I really understand the phrase, "But your honor, he needed killing". Truly I do.

This sounds very much like MOST conversations my husband and I have... but after 21 years, they're just not nearly this funny anymore. :/

Must be a man thing... either that or both our husbands have early dementia. I think it's selective hearing.

I am so laughing out loud right now...this is just like my house, except that sadly, I am Jason.

It's definitely a man thing. I've decided that all conversations with men need to be recorded. That way you can play it back and explain to him exactly how wrong he was. The end. LOL :)
