We’re driving home. “Other Side” comes on the radio.
Me: I need to put more Aerosmith on my ipod.
John: And that’s Thing #482 of “Things You Don’t Expect Your Wife To Say She Wants To Do” List.
Me: We’ve been together for almost 20 years. How do you NOT know this about me? And there’s a list? What’s #1?
John: There’s a list. And I did NOT know that about you.
Me: What happens if I say “Guns n Roses”? And what’s #1?
John: I cringe, visibly. Guns n Roses? And #1 can’t be discussed with kids around. Show you later.
Me: Fair enough. What else is on that list? What’s #481?
John: Guns n Roses? #481 also is not kid-friendly. We’ll save it for tomorrow; I’ll be useless after #1.
Me: You do know about Bon Jovi, right? I’ve been running with Bon Jovi for years.
John: Yes, I know about that one.
Me: What happens if I say Nirvana or Soundgarden?
John: I push you out of the car.
Me: I’m driving.
John: Only slightly problematic.
Me: Is there a middle ground here? Somewhere between me and my Soundgarden and you and your Men Without Hats & Wham?
John: Maybe the Beatles? Or Stan Rogers.
Me: Push me out of the car.

I’m all Guns ‘n’ Roses and my husband is all Stan Rogers. Scary…. And pushing you out of the car being only slightly problematic? Hilarious!
