We had some people over yesterday. And, as people sometimes do, we reminisced a bit. We were talking and laughing....when Hubby pipes up with this, "Hey! Do you remember when So-n-So came to dinner?"
I responded with a no. Because I certainly do NOT remember So-n-So; much less the fact that he came to dinner at our house.
Hubby persisted, "Of COURSE you do! Remember? We talked about this and that?!"
Hubby kept on; supplying details of the conversation, what was served, etc.....so SURE that I'd remember.....
Eventually, he gave up and remarked in frustration, "Just HOW do you forget a whole PERSON!? A whole body; hair and teeth and everything!"
In my defense, IF the alleged dinner actually took place where and when Hubby claims - then Man-Child would have been old enough to remember this guy (AND his wife - so, obviously, I've forgotten TWO persons!) and he doesn't.
So to my thinking, this dinner never happened and Hubby is delusional.
OR.....somehow I have passed along my faulty memory to my child....
Nope, I'm going with Hubby being delusional. It works for me.
