SH: But if we had stayed in your house in Memphis, there would have been no place for the TV.
Me: I don't care. I don't need to have a TV.
SH: Look how many vegetables I am having: salad, spinach, squash casserole. And I had cantaloupe and zucchini bread before. I deserve some custard. Me: And a beer.
SH: You like watching movies on ours.
I think about how I have gotten my money's worth from our property taxes with all the movies we have gotten from the library in the past year. Maybe two movies a week, @ $5 a movie, which is about $500, but then throw in the books @$20/book and you get to $5,000 right quick. We are now working on amortizing the TV itself, which SH (the borderline agnostic but fortunately not hostile atheist) bought after a Sign From God. God works in mysterious ways, even for those who aren't sure they believe.
Me: If I have to have a TV, I like the one we have. But if you go down in a plane crash, after I get rid of the cats and throw away all your crap in the basement, I am canceling the cable.
SH: I thought you loved the cats!
The cats also had chocolate chocolate-chip zucchini bread.
Me: They still shed and I am tired of cleaning up after them.
SH: But I thought Laverne was your sweetie.
Me: Maybe I'd get rid of the cats second.
Another hunter, although not of chocolate chocolate-chip zucchini bread. This is my mom's cousin.
