My wife just blew my mind.
I was trying to get her to read a book.

Here's how the conversation went down:

Mrs: I'm not reading that physics book with Batman on the cover!
Me: Which one?
Mrs: You know, the one with Batman, or that guy who looks like Batman on the cover.
Me: What?
Mrs: The one in the wheel chair!
Me: Stephen Hawking?
Mrs: Yes. That's the guy, the one who looks like Batman.
Me: ......... huh?
Mrs: He looks like Batman! Don't give me that face, he does!
Me: ........


Yes, I'm still puzzling over that one.



Isn't my wife great? :D

Also, please take her to an ophthalmologist.

Our 19 month old however disagrees.

4. Purple suit, big grin? She's probably thinking of The Joker rather than Batman.

15. I can picture Hawking as a Batman villain.
He'd be one of the all-brain no-brawn types of course. :P

6. I'm guessing that Hawking would be amused by the comparison.
I'd volunteer to sit for the kid so that you two could have a night out but the commute's kind of a killer.

p.s. and totally OT: Organic Gardening magazine name Ptld # 1 greenest city in the under 150,000 pop category.

10. I'd believe it.
We're considering joining a group that's starting a co-op that will sell mostly Maine grown organic foods (even flour, etc).

The commute to babysit would be a long as possible and not cross an ocean!
:rofl:

You wouldn't want to babysit him now anyways. He's in the 'mommy mommy mommy mommy mommy' stage. That's all he would say, and in a sad voice if you babysat him. Heck, he does it to me! :D

14. Maybe she meant the Joker.
That picture of Hawking wouldn't take much to make it into the Joker.

16. I got the expert opinion here (8yo son heard me laughing and came to investigate)
Hawking <> Batman.
End of story.
