Who dat?

Sometimes I wonder what sort of people we will be when we are old. I mean, I know we will basically be the same people, but what sort of current habits will be amplified? I mean, for example, Nordic Boy is already a sleepy sort of person. He works really hard, and when he sits down, he often just falls dead asleep. I fear that our retirement will consist of him taking 20 hour naps each day. I, on the other hand, am a troubled sleeper, who often is running on 5 or 6 hours of sleep a night. I fear that I will be one of those old people that wakes up at 4am each morning no matter what. He’ll be asleep and I’ll be awake and we’ll see each other for 30 minutes a day.

One thing I am fairly certain of, is that Nordic Boy will be that old man who mixes everyone’s names up. He already does it, but I think it’s only going to get worse from here.

In the last 2 days, this has been said…

Me: Let’s watch I Am Love this week.
Him: Which one is that? The one with Chelsea Clinton in it?
Me: Tilda Swinton. Not Chelsea Clinton.
Him: Sounds the same.

(Us, watching Jimmy Fallon).
Him: Is that the guy from The Roots?
Me: It’s all the guys from The Roots.
Him: Which one?
Me: All of them.
Him: Oh.
Him: Hey! That’s the entire group of The Roots!
Me: Dude, I just said that. They’re the house band.
Him: (looking right at Jimmy Fallon) They are? For that guy? Jimmy Kimmel?
Me: That’s Jimmy Fallon!
Him: Where?


  1. This is too funny! My husband has been increasingly cantankerous. I have a feeling I am going to be stuck with an embarassingly crabby old man.
