Do you ever (on those rare occasions that the remote is in YOUR hand) put on a show that you KNOW your husband is going to object to?
I do. Just to test how long it takes for him to pitch a fit.
But he didn't the other night when I turned on Steal Magnolias during the Christmas party scene, just as Shelby is announcing her pregnancy. David had never seen it, and decided to play along.
He had missed all the character building, so I had to explain the friendships and the close mother-daughter relationship Shelby and Malin have.
I, of course, was fighting tears from the get-go. But I didn't warn him.
I didn't prepare him...
So as the family is gathered in the hospital around the life-less Shelby, in a child-like voice David asks "what's he signing?".
(I didn't answer)
Then in that same, innocent voice "they're going to let her... die?"
But then he turned back in to a man "stupid movie".
