Spouse is enamored of sappy holiday movies this time of year. One was on the tube as I passed by.
Me: Oh, yeah…. Stuart Pankin’s in this movie.
She: I saw his name in the opening credits.
Me: Haven’t seen him for a while…actually, the last time was when he was being the voice of “Earl” in Dinosaurs, so I didn’t see him then. I miss that show.
She: Me too, but I still haven’t seen him.
Me: What do you mean?
She: I know he’s in this movie, but it’s nearly half over and I haven’t seen him yet. Maybe it was a little part and I missed him.
Me: Uh, that’s him right there.
She: There? Where?
Me: Right there. In the shorts and weird shirt.
She (frowning): You mean the old guy??
Me: Mmmm, yeah, I guess I do.
She: That’s not…oh. You’re right. I wasn’t paying attention to his voice.
Me: That’s him.
She: But it was just…I mean, it wasn’t that long ago!
Me: Yes it was.
She: You mean we’re…?
Me: Can’t argue with that.
