The whole family piled in the car last weekend to head down to see family for Christmas. Brian spent a bit of time trying to find out from me what his Christmas present was, while Helen sat in the backseat drinking some juice and looking out the window. Then Brian asked me if I got him a new videogame. Since his usual M.O. with a new videogame is to occupy the sofa for 2 weeks while perfecting it, I responded as any loving wife would.
Jennie: Do you think I'm stupid?
Helen: (from backseat) You're not stupid, Mommy!
Brian: Helen, I think Mommy was actually calling Daddy stupid.
Helen: Oh. Okay!
Jennie: (laughs hysterically)
Brian: (clenches jaw)
