An Incomplete List Of Sounds My Husband Has Confused For My Voice

1. A zipper

2. The dialogue in Parenthood when multiple people were talking at once

3. The front door hinge squeaking


This Is Why I Don't Have "A List"

"He's good looking."
"No. You have enough crushes already."
"What do you mean?"
"With you and your David Mitchell..."
"You know that that's the author, not the comedian, right?"
"That makes it even worse! You could meet him and say that you were under the power of some sort of mind meld."
"Because David Mitchell is Vulcan?"
"Because he's an INTELLECTUAL!"
"Would it be better if it were David Mitchell, the comedian?"
"No! Because he would woo you with laughter."
"What about both David Mitchells... AT THE SAME TIME?"
"Now you've gone too far."


You're closer.


"You get it."
"You're closer."


"Be careful with the..."
"The glass things."
"What? THIS? I'm not even close."
"Well just be careful."


"I'm enjoying the part when it's on the ground more."
"This is the least fun game ever."
"Make The Husband Pick Up The Birdie!"
"Aim For The Wife!"


"You're closer."
"Okay, I can see how this might end up with me hitting the television."
"Well, should we put on some records and dance?"
"I'm too tired. I walked all the way home."
"Should I put on some records and dance for you?"
"If you have that much energy, why don't you make me a cup of tea?"
"You're closer."


You May Remember Him For His Hit Single "I Ain't Madchester"

J: This place is fantastic!
Me: I know, right? They're playing Echo & the Bunnymen and The Cure. And I love all the art!
J: Apparently it's musicians from Northern England. Happy Mondays, The Smiths, Richard Ashcroft...
Me: Isn't that Tupac?
J: [...]
Me: You know, Tupac, he was from Manchester.
J: You'd never know it, would you?
Me: He hid it well.

(Full disclosure: a friend of ours is a co-owner of the Black Horse Pub. We each got a drink ticket on entry, and paid for the rest of our drinks last night out of our own wallet. But you can bet that if we lived in Brooklyn this place would be our new local.)


Bro-therly Love

"Let's see what crap films are on."
"How about I Love You, Man? It's got that guy from Freaks and Geeks in it."
"What's it about?"
"Here's the synopsis on IMDb: 'Friendless Peter Klaven goes on a series of man-dates...'"
"'...to find a Best Man for his wedding. But when his insta-bond with his new B.F.F....'"
"No no no no no."
"Oh, look; they have a Bromance category!"
"No. We are not watching anything that qualifies as a Bromance."
"Hmm... There's nothing in the category."
"But wouldn't I Love You, Man qualify as a Bromance? I think if any film were to qualify for the Bromance category it would be I Love You, Man."
"No Bromances."
"Well you'd better help me pick a film. Or else it's I Love You, Man."
"No! That's the crappest of the crap."
"You said a crap film."
"See what else is on."
"Hang on. I'll check what's on Bromance On Demand."
