Getting Schooled

My husband was watching a movie last night on Showtime and it was one of those "smart" movies with a twist that you don’t figure out until the end. I've never really liked those kinds of movies. I like movies with a pretty straightforward and predictable ending. I don't like my movies to make me feel stupid. It's probably why I like Adam Sandler movies…

Anyway, even though I didn't want to watch it, I was still curious.

Me: "What movie is this?"

Him: "Source Code."

Me: "What's that male actor's name? I know he's pretty famous."

Him: "No, isn't."

Me: "Yes, he is. Press the info button."

He presses info. Me: "See, Jake Gyllenhaal. He is famous!"

Him: "No, he's not."

Me: "Yes, he is!" (We are obviously very civilized and mature).

Him: "Just because he dated Taylor Swift doesn't mean he's famous."

Me: *stunned silence* "How the hell did you know he dated Taylor Swift? I didn't even know that!"

Him: "Oh and he dated that girl from That 70's Show."

Me: "Ok, How did you know THAT?"

Him: "From that magazine." He points behind him to the bathroom.

Yes, this is what happens when I put my Entertainment Weekly's into his "library" in the bathroom. Maybe I should start putting in magazines about spoiling your wife or about making a million dollars. Is there a book for men about how to not be babies when they are sick? The possibilities are endless!

In the meantime, I'm Googling Jake Gyllenhaal. I wouldn't put it past him to just make up these things to mess with me...

He used to be Kirsten Dunst's boyfriend, too. Mr. Gyllenhaal gets around. I really liked him in Donnie Darko, but that's sort of totally a cult movie.
