Here’s sure fire proof that my husband is not listening to a word I’m saying while he’s shopping online and I’m discussing something as important as the sex of our new cat.
Me: Do you know that only 1 out of 3,000 tortoise shell cats is a male?
Vince: So, what do you think ours is?
Me: A female!
Vince: Why do you say that?
Me: Statistically . . it almost has to be a female. It has something to do with the X and Y chromosomes and it’s almost impossible for a tortoise shell to be a male.
Vince: I think it could be a male.
Me: Could be . . I don’t think you’re listening to a word I’m saying!
Vince: You said the cat might be a girl!
Me: What are the chances of it being a boy?
Vince: Who knows!
This could be a good time to ask him if he has a problem with me spending $500 on a yarn order! Somehow, I think when dollars are involved, he pays a little closer attention.
