My wife, Elysha, and I were eating dinner in a pizza joint with friends last night. My friend and I were quoting Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I have no idea why, but we were. “You chose… wisely,” I said, quoting the Grail Knight near the end of the film after Indy chooses the real Holy Grail.
No,” my wife said. “You have chosen… wisely.”
That’s right. My wife corrected my quoting of an Indiana Jones movie.
I have chosen wisely. I clearly married the greatest woman of all time.
As if that wasn’t enough, my wife then reaffirmed her assertion that if she were pregnant and in labor with our first child, and I was scheduled to play in the Super Bowl at that very same moment, she would expect me to play in the game and miss the birth of my child. ____________________________
To cap off the evening, another friend said, “Actually, I read something this week that I liked a lot… Oh, you wrote it!”
That’s right. My friend was about to quote me back to me. ____________________________
Maybe not the greatest night ever. My wedding night was pretty amazing, and there have been other nights equally memorable, but this one was pretty damn good.
