Conversation at dinner:
Rich: “…And Joe Flaherty is in it.”
Me: [blank stare]
Rich: “He’s from SCTV…?”
Me: “Oh.” [Half head-nod, half shrug]
Rich: “Are you sure you’re Canadian?! Canadians like SCTV from the time they’re in the womb. We used to watch it all the time in high school.”
Me: “Yeah, I have a feeling if I’d known you in high school I wouldn’t be married to you now.”
Rich: “What?! We totally would have hung out in high school.”
Me: “I dunno. I don’t think we had much in common then.”
Rich: “Yeah, we would have. Besides, I know what you looked like in Grade 12.”
Shortly after that one of us got smart and changed the topic.
And incidentally, I think he married me because he knows what I looked like in high school. My awesome bangs from 1992 totally sealed the deal.
