Married People Conversations: NASA

The Scene: Last night, dinner at Noodles. 

The Hubby: Guess what I bought at Target today.

Me: Dunno. What did you buy?

The Hubby, eyes big and excited: A NASA shirt!

Me, confused: Really? You’re not a space fan kinda guy. [a pause, thinking] What’s the name of the rover that’s on Mars right now?

The Hubby, bluffing: The Mars Rover, duuuuuh.

Me, shaking my head pitingly.

The Hubby: Just kidding. It’s Galileo.

Me, blinking.

The Hubby: No? How about Newton? Einstein? Copernicus?

Me: Curiosity. Tell me why it’s there. What’s it doing on Mars?

The Hubby: Roving?

Me, stiffling a smile and trying to look stern SO. HARD.

The Hubby: Research and shit.

Me: Won on a technicality! But seriously, dude, why a NASA shirt?

The Hubby: It’s an emblem of science and innovation. It’s a message to people around me that I support science and that I believe in humanity’s ability and dream to get out into the stars and discover new things about the universe we live in.

Me aka The Jackass: You, sir, are going to rock that t-shirt so hard.

    “Roving?”

    That is adorable. And I love that he pulls out the big inspiration speech just at the end. Well played, sir, well played.

    Would that we had a logo that evoked emotional investment, but in ocean exploration. I’m getting a strong visual of the Calypso, heading out of the harbor. But it’s been a while and I suspect the sound tracking ringing in my ears is, yes it definitely is, from those old National Geographic specials.

    Hope and wonder are beautiful things.

    I am experiencing an overpowering urge to go watch “The Life Aquatic”.
