What'd you say?
Okay, problem from the last post solved - since my friend is going back to our hometown, she's just taking my sister with her and my mom can do whatever she wants without having to worry about it. Thank goodness!Anyway, since that post was boring, and now solved, I thought I'd share a funny anecdote from last night.
Aaron and I both seem to have the problem that many married couples do - we sometimes aren't listening to each other. Case in point from last night:
Him: What are we having for dinner?
Me: Pasta and salad.
Him: Is there any sauce on he pasta?
Me: Yes. It's tortellini with spinach and walnut pesto. I think I'm throwing in some grape tomatoes too.
Him: That sounds good.
So, I make the pasta, call him to eat and we enjoy the meal while watching "Grandma's Boy" (which I totally recommend - very funny). After the movie he's starting to clean up in the kitchen and gets a concerned look on his face.
Him: How much basil did you have to use to make this? The plants must be bare.
Me: Um, none.
Him: None? Oh! It's spinach?
Me: Yes. It's called spinach/walnut pesto That's why I asked you if you thought that was about five ounces of spinach.
Him: There's walnuts in it too?
Me: (big sigh) Yes. That's why I call it spinach and walnut pesto. Because it has both spinach and walnuts in it.
Him: Oh. Well, it's a good use of spinach.
Me: Yes (while leaving the room because I can't take it any more)
I know he's not the only one who doesn't fully listen, because I've caught myself doing the same from time to time.
But seriously? It didn't even taste like basil. I think he just heard pesto, and left it at that.
