It Was Missing

Oh no.

I couldn’t find it.

It was lost.

So I dialed my husband’s cell phone. When he picked up I went, “Tom, this is in an emergency.” I didn’t say it in a this-is-a-real-emergency tone. It was a playful tone.

Tom didn’t seem to get this though.

“What happened? Are the kids okay? Did you get spooked again? Amber, I told you, if you hear something moving around in the front yard it’s just antelope. It’s not an alien. And no, that thing you saw in the corner was not a ghost. It was probably the curtain,” Tom said.

“The kids are fine. I’m not spooked,” I said, rifling through the cabinet for my missing treasure. Where could it be? WHERE WAS IT? Maybe an alien abducted it…

“Then…why are you calling me? I’m at work.” Now Tom was irritated. And yes, I know I shouldn’t call him at work but let it be known that sometimes he just calls me just to see what’s up. And usually when he calls it’s not a good time. I’m usually struggling to get Natalie to brush her teeth and when I grab the phone she escapes and hides. Or I’m trying to get Natalie to sleep and when I turn and get the phone, she races from the room and yells, “Bye!” and then I have to wrangle her all over again.

“I know you’re at work. But it’s missing!” I wailed.

“What’s missing?” Tom asked impatiently.

Oh. Right. I should probably tell him that.

“The Hangover. My DVD! It was here in the movie cabinet and now it’s gone. I really wanted to watch Mike Tyson try to act tonight. I wanted to see that Chinese man who appears on like every show and movie jump out of the trunk of the car naked,” I complained. I pushed aside some of my other DVDs.

“Oh.” Now Tom sounded guilty. “I took it to watch tonight.”

See, if he finishes all his walks with his dog he gets to sit and watch DVDs until he gets a call telling him to show up with his dog.

“Tom! That was my DVD!” Seriously, it was MINE. I paid for it with my Christmas money.

“Technically it’s ours,” Tom pointed out.

“You should have asked! You don’t appreciate it like I do!”

“Yes, I do,” Tom argued.

“No, you don’t. Take Billy Madison for example. You never laugh when Billy is making the shampoo and conditioner fight. That scene is hilarious and you just SIT there,” I whined.

“It’s not that funny,” Tom said. “He’s making shower products argue.”

“It’s hilarious!” I insisted. “I want my Hangover back!”

“You can have it tomorrow,” Tom said calmly. “Go watch Pacey’s Creek or something.”

“It’s DAWSON’S Creek and I don’t feel like it. I have to be all angsty when I watch that. I’m not feeling angsty. I’m feeling silly and I want to watch The Hangover,” I fumed.

“You can’t,” Tom said simply. I hate how he can remain so calm while we’re arguing. I just want him to react sometimes. Don’t just STAND there.

“You’re mean,” I said and hung up. In the end I decided to watch Billy Madison.

And yes, I cracked up at the fight between the shampoo and conditioner.

  4. That movie made me laugh so hard.
    I'd be irritated too. I hate when you want something and have decided you were going to watch/eat it at a certain time, and it's GONE!

  8. Love that part of Billy Madison! Makes me cry with laughter every time! Men don't get it. They don't use shampoo and conditioner. They don't understand the need for both and how they probably hate each other.

  9. Haven't seen the Hangover... I heard it was funny, but I totally hated Nepoleon Dynamite, so I'm not sure about the Hangover... Adam Sandler, however, he is good!

  11. I've never seen The Hangover, but I want to. I told my husband this, and he said, "But you told me you didn't want to see it. You said it looked stupid." "That's EXACTLY WHY I want to see it!" I don't remember ever saying I didn't want to see it, though.

  19. I finally got to watch the Hangover just last week and it was the funniest movie I've seen in a while. Billy Madison is one of the most awesome movies ever and that scene is one of the best! Did you hear they are making a Hangover 2? Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Awesome movie! I'd be pissed too!

  21. This is hysterical! The Pacey's Creek think is like when my husband says "MyFacebook," as opposed to Facebook and MySpace. But my favorite is when Conan talked about creating a mega-site combo of YouTube, Twitter, and MySpace: "YouTwitFace." :D

  22. Billy Madison is an excellent back up choice. Though I'm impartial to Happy Gilmore. ;)

  23. The hangover is on my list of movies to watch. So many people have to me how funny it is so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Men! The least he could have done was ask you, right?

  24. I love, love, love that movie. The Chinese guy in the trunk makes me laugh out loud even thinking about him. I hope Tom brings the movie home so you can watch it soon. You'll feel better, fo sho!!

  25. "Who's baby is that?"

    "I don't know. Check it's collar."

    "Not at the table, Carlos!"

    "It's not a purse. It's a satchel. Indiana Jones has one."

    I could be here all night.......

  26. Thankfully, when my husband takes a movie with him when he travels, he just takes the Lord of the Rings trilogy and really, we both end up happier that way!

  27. Billy Madison rocks my socks off. And the scene in the Hangover with the naked Chinese man makes my Man feel like he's extremely special. LoL

  28. I'd be mad too, The Hangover is good stuff.

  30. Hangover=Hilarious
    Billy Madison=Notsomuch

    I seriously have not laughed that hard in a long time as when we watched Hangover. Don't watch Funny People, though. It lacks...funny.

  31. Wow - I must really be out of it. I have never heard of The Hangover. I haven't seen Billy Madison or Dawson's Creek. I really have to start watching something other than Spongebob and Max & Ruby :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is my favorite line: I have to be all angsty when I watch that.

    I have still not seen the Hangover, though everyone says it's amazing. I know, I know! I need to soon.

    (Found you on SITS!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love both Hangover & Billy Madison! :) And you are so right... you have to be in an "angsty" mood to watch Dawson's Creek.

    Stopping by from SITS! Have a blessed weekend!
