Me: “Hey. I have a quick math question for you.”
My husband: “OK.”
Me: (feeling all proud of myself for my carefully thought-out question) “OK, I need to know how many MB’s correspond to 7 JPG’s.”
My husband: “That’s like asking, ‘How many cars does it take to go 70 mph?’ ”
Me: (totally deflated): “Oh.”
