In our household, updating the Netflix queue is just about as important as taking a shower, which is very important – especially during the summer. Every time I run across a movie, a classic movie that The Hubbs hasn’t seen I’m astonished. How have you made it this far in life without seeing The Godfather trilogy or The Deer Hunter? Are you a real person? Or have I made you up and my brain couldn’t possibly make you 100% perfect, so your one flaw is that you haven’t watched M*A*S*H, the movie?
Me: Well, what are you in the mood for next?
The Hubbs: Ummm..
Me: OH MY GOSH! You could finally watch Animal House and become a real boy.
The Hubbs: …
Me: How come you haven’t seen this, anyway?
The Hubbs: We’ve been over this. My parents didn’t watch a lot of movies. Because…
Me: Because they didn’t want you to see “R” rated movies?
The Hubbs: No. Because…
Me: Because, honestly, “R” rated movies? Ya’ll were out jumping off of roofs and getting tangled in fences and jumping off of bridges. You probably would have been safer inside watching an “R” rated movie.
The Hubbs: BECAUSE my parents had other things to do. They were busy. That’s why.
Me: That’s dumb.
Thank God he’s seen Blazing Saddles. This marriage will work afterall.
