Things My Husband Says

*blowing the dust off the blog*

Yeah... It's been a while. And also crazy busy, but what else is new? It's been the usual chaos - the day job, writing, volunteering at my kid's school, getting ready for RT and now, this.

Matt's work gave all of the IT department money toward a Kindle or an iPad as reward for going above and beyond the call of duty - basically working 14-16 hour days for an entire month. So Matt got an iPad.

Earlier this week, I pointed out that he could get free kindle books if he wanted to try out some new authors, so he happily downloaded a pile of books and has been reading ever since.

Today, this conversation happened.

Matt: Question?

Me: How am I still so awesome after all these years? No clue.

Matt: No. How do I tell if the books I'm downloading are your kind of books.

Me: By 'my kind of books', do you mean the kind I write? If so, the mostly naked people on the cover should be a big tip off.

Matt: No - I mean books that you read.

Me: I read a lot of different kinds of books.

Matt: I don't know...I girly books. I think this might be one.

Me: Girly books? Seriously? First off, fuck you. Secondly, do you mean romance?

Matt: I guess.

Me: Go to the Amazon page for the book and look at the genre. What does it say?

Matt: It says romance. I'm screwed.

Me: Why? Because you like it?

Matt: No because I'm mostly done with it and now I have to finish it.

(He's never DNFed a book no matter how bad it was or how much he hated it)

Me: *eyeroll*

Matt: *sigh* I guess this explains all the feelings in here.

Yep - this is the one I have.
