Whenever Hubby and Moe talk about sports, I tend to zone out. I try to follow them and contribute to their sports conversation. Sometimes, they're amazed with the information I provide and then there are other times like this...
Hubby : "Moe, did you know that "so and so" didn't sign with the 49ers?"
Moe: "What team did he join?"
Hubby: "The Cardinals"
Me: (I try to bluff my way into this conversation) "Wow! So, he's going to join an East Coast team."
They both respond at the same time.
Moe: "You obviously don't know what you're talking about."
Me: "I said that "so and so" is going to join the Marlins on the East Coast."
Hubby: "Honey, he joined the Arizona Cardinals."
Me: (shrug my shoulder and pretend not to be embarrassed) "Well, Cardinals and Marlins are the same thing. It's easy to get them confused."
Moe: (rolls his eyes) "Mom. Cardinals are birds and Marlins are fish."
Me: "Oh". (trying to change the subject so they can stop laughing at me) "Does anyone want seconds?"
Their laughter continues and I secretly wish I had laxatives to put in their food.
