Lately, we've been trying to be a little more 'adult.' We decided to eat at the dinner table tonight, since we did a lot of cleaning over the weekend and the table (and dining room) was clear.
We sat at the table, eating spaghetti (her homemade sauce is AMAZING) and discussing how we were 'responsible grown-ups.'
Her: "You know, next we're going to be using napkins..."
Me: "Paper or cloth? And do we get those fancy napkin rings as well?"
Her: "Cloth of course. We're refined adults after all..."
We laughed, ate a little bit, and then I broke the silence...
Me: "...maybe we should say Grace next time?" This made her laugh because we're not exactly religious. Instead of 'God' we sometimes substitute the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
So we start talking about how giving thanks to a deity made of spaghetti WHILE EATING SPAGHETTI was probably a little inappropriate.
(insert a few more moments of silence)
Me: "Well, it's no more odd than the Body of Christ, right? And much tastier than a wafer..."
AND THIS IS WHY I CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS. (and why I'm cleaning spaghetti-laughter-spit from the floor)
