We were visiting with some friends when my husband used a phrase I had never heard of.
“Where do you come up with these things?” I asked.
My friend looked up from the game board and said, “That phrase has been around forever.”
“Ok,” I replied, “but I’ve never heard him use it. Sheesh! I’ve been with him for over half my life. You’d think I’d have heard all the phrases he knows by now.”
“You are that old?!” Daryl asked.
“You are old enough to have been married to Daddy for half your life?”
“Well, I said ‘been with him’ but we’ve actually been married for over half our lives too.”
“But what about your childhood?!”
“My childhood was a lot shorter than adulthood has been at this point.”
“Besides,” my husband said, “We were 18 when we got married. We were kids.”
Daryl had another hysterically funny-yet-insulting-to-his-mother line after that, but by the time we got home, I had forgotten it. Guess I am getting old.
