Is Our Account Screwed Up or Does My Dear Husband Just Not Pay Attention?

I’m looking at the household mail after being away for two days:

I open our most recent movie from Blockbuster Online, it’s “Lucky You.”

“Our Blockbuster account is all screwed up,” my husband tells me.

“What do you mean?” I reply.

“Because we’re supposed to get ‘Michael Clayton.’ The other day we got some stupid movie called, ‘Once’ so I sent it back.”

“You did what?”

“I sent it back.”

“Well, I reordered the list the other day. Blockbuster isn’t broken. ”


“Obviously, you don’t read my blog.”

“Why do you say that?”

“Because, if you read my blog, you’d know that that ‘stupid’ movie ‘Once’ contains a song that won best song at the academy Awards. I bloggged about the awesome and inspiring acceptance speeches the singers gave and how they made this ‘stupid movie’ for $100,000, three weeks and two video cameras. That’s why.”

“Oh. Sorry.”

    That’s funny. The same thing happens with me and my friends. They’ll be talking about something and I’ll say, “Oh, I blogged about that!” And they’ll respond, “You did?” And I’ll reply, “Ummm…yeah. Obviously you’re not an avid reader of my blog.”

    LOL. You’ve got to love an attentive husband.
    I’m very interested in seeing that movie. You’ll have to let us know what you think.

    Although the story is true, you will notice that when confronted with the accusation of not reading her blog I stated “Why do you say that?”

    That statement is neither an admission of guilt nor a white lie to cover for potentially hurt feelings. While I may been outed for my lack of blog reading, my deftness on dodging the accusation until I knew just how much hot water I’m actually could be seen by some as brilliant husbanding.

    Oh, and I’m now off the hook for movie when it comes back. Not paying attention? Great Chick-flick time management? You decide.
