On the way to pick up lunch, head-banger music is pouring out of the car stereos, making each individual cell of my body cry out in pain.

Me: “Could we maybe listen to something else?”

My husband: “Sure. I guess we could listen to some Christmas music, since it is still the Christmas season.”

Me: “Right. Until Epiphany.”

My husband (at the same time): “Until the end of all the bowl games.”

My husband: “When the three kings come home with…”(a long pause, while he struggles to remember what the Wise Men brought with them.)

Me (trying to help him out): “A bowl trophy?”

My husband: “Exactly.”
