Conversation I had with Victor after I decided we needed to start having game night…
me: I’m signing us up for sign language classes so we’ll be really good at charades on game night.
Victor: First off, I don’t do “game night”. Secondly, that’s not how charades works.
me: I’m pretty sure it is, but you have to learn it too because I need a partner.
Victor: I’m not going to learn sign language just so we can cheat at charades. We don’t even play charades.
me: Well, we’re going to start. Because it’s good for America.
Victor: What the f…?
me: Because it’s American Sign Language so it’s patriotic. Because it’s made in America.
Victor: That’s not how patriotism works.
me: Why do you hate America, Victor?
Victor: This is why I don’t talk to you when you’re drunk.
And that’s why we can’t have game night at our house. Also, I was dead sober and I do not appreciate the implication otherwise.
UPDATED: Oh wait. No. He’s right. I was drunk.
UPDATED X 2: But that doesn’t make me any less right.
