Special K's proudest moment this Christmas?
When I unwrapped this...
ME: Um... I don't get it.
Special K: (beaming so big I thought his face would split right in two so help me) You hafta guess!
ME: (sighing) It's a cord. You got me a cord.
Special K: Nope! Guess again! (still beaming)
ME: Television cords! OMG you got me a flatscreen!! AAHHHH!!!
Special K: (wincing) Ah no. What are those? What can you use them for?
ME: Extension cords? We're extending my laptop to the flatscreen? Inneresting.
Special K: Keep guessing.
ME: Speaker cords? You got me a stereo?
Special K: (sighing) No. Not a stereo, Jesus. Keep guessing.
ME: Are you serious? You want to keep playing this reindeer game? Ugh.
Special K: (teeth gritted) Just do it. Guess. What are they?
ME: I. Don't. Know. It's just a cable to something. I don't f**king know.
Special K: (beaming once again) YEEES! It's a cable!
I felt like I was in a scene from Coming to America: Yes! It's a cable! Isn't it nice?!
Special K: Cable. Caaaaaaaabllllllllllle. (Eyes ready to pop out of his lovely head.)
ME: A cable. You got me a cable?
Special K: He was willing me to figure this out by boring his eyes into my skull. I got you cable. Cable.
ME: (with renewed enthusiasm) You got me cable? Like movie stuff cable? Like ditching the rabbit ears and watching The Daily Show not on a laptop cable?
Special K: (smugly) Yep. AT&T U-verse gets here on Tuesday.
So I guess it must be Tuesday (see last post) because I have cable dammit. And I watched The Daily Show, Anderson Cooper 360 and even a little Fox News just to see what the 'other guys' are up to these days. I may never sleep again.
