Conversations with The Boy

*Discussing the UK Apprentice’s Karren Brady in bed last night*

The Boy: I love her.
Me: I know you do.
The Boy: She’s the perfect women.
Me: I know she is.
The Boy: But she really is! Oh Karren….we have so much in common!
Me: Yeah I know, she was a managing director of a football team…
The Boy: And it was Birmingham who were my super Football Manager team. And she’s on The Apprentice, which is my favourite show…
Me: And she’s half Italian…
The Boy: And I’m half French. She gets me …she’s great!
Me: Yeah, ok, I get it …I don’t do this to you with other guys!
The Boy: You have hundreds of guys!
Me: No I do not!
The Boy: Yeah you do…like….*concentrates to remember the male actor I told him about earlier that night*…Conan Firth.
Me: First of all it’s Colin…
The Boy: Oh yeah!
Me: And second of all, I mentioned that I was in love with him when I was a hormanal teenager because he played Mr Darcy…twice.
The Boy: I don’t know who that is.
Me: … don’t know who Mr Darcy is?
The Boy: Nope.
Me: One of the most famous fictional characters of all time!???
The Boy: No…what was he in?
Me: Pride and Prejudice!!!!!!!!!
The Boy: Oh….I’ve never seen it.
Me: *shocked* It’s a BOOK!!!!! I mean they made film versions, but it’s Jane Austen CLASSIC! It’s a couple of hundred years old!!!
The Boy: Oh right….
Me: It’s one of my favourite books!
The Boy: …..this is blog material, isn’t it?
Me: Indeed.

    I feel for the boy sometimes,
    although I do wonder about his taste in TV now 😛
    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a far better book btw.

    i love that the boy is beginning to recognise when he’s talked himself onto the blog!
