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.
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.
