I used to wish that I could live in a Jennifer Crusie novel, not just for the wonderful romance and men who loved the women unconditionally and relished in their curves, but also for the banter. I craved the banter.
Then I friended The Guy on Facebook, reconnecting, and we bantered for 2 or 3 weeks until we met up in person. The banter has continued ever since, and even after 22 months together, he never fails to crack me up.
Tonight is a merely mediocre example, but I'm still laughing.
He's playing WoW while I goof off, and I decided I needed a movie on in the background. I pressed play on Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and a High School Musical preview started.
Me (on the couch): "AUGH!! Where's the remote? Fast-forward! FAST-FORWARD! Why would someone DO this?!"
Him (from the computer): "Because it's Disney."
Me: "But it's wrong! EVIL."
Me: "They're trying to make me blind and deaf and ill before my movie begins?"
Him: "Like life at sea."
Me: "High School Musical is scurvy?"
Him: *pauses, then nods* "Yeah, pretty much."
