The 80s Ate My Brain

Last night, Shannon and I were on our way out of the house when I pointed out how pretty the moon was. Shannon commented, "It was a new moon on Monday." I giggled in response, and Shannon gave me his patented look that says, "I married a strange woman. But, alas, no one else would have me."

I asked him, "You do know why that's funny, right?" (I ask him this at least once each week.) He looked exasperated and said, "No."

"It's a Duran Duran song," I explained. "'New Moon On Monday,'" at which point I sang a few bars of the song, which you luckily cannot hear. I do not have the best singing voice in the world.

Shannon continued to look at me with his look that says, "I married a strange woman. But, alas, no one else would have me." He did not recognize the song. I was not singing it badly enough for that to be my fault.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I married a philistine.

Edited To Add: Shannon points out that there are most likely plenty of women who would have been happy to have him. But, as I explained to him, it was funnier the way I wrote it. Hrmph.
