Conversation with my ex husband, otherwise known as Number 2.
• • •
Me: I’m excited about The Avengers movie, it looks great.
Ex husband: It sucks.
Me: What are you talking about? (I should not have asked this question, you’d think I’d have learned this after knowing him for 14 years)
Him: They’re not doing it right. In the comic book blah blah blah blah Captain America blah blah blah Ironman blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Me: (Blank stare) Whatever, I think it looks great. It has Robert Downey Jr. AND Jeremy Renner.
Him: And that’s another thing, Hawkeye blah blah blah blah blah.
Me: You need to let it go.
Him: No. It pisses me off. Everyone should be pissed off about this and you should be too. This is why we’re not married anymore.
Me: Ha. You got that right.

In case you’re new, ex and I have a good relationship and joke often with each other about “why we aren’t married anymore.” This is a typical comic-book related conversation with us. In fact, I’m fairly certain I only said anything to him because I knew it would set him off. Hehehehe … Yeah, that’s how I roll! And that’s another reason we aren’t married anymore!
As for me, I will see this movie.
^^Because I love Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner.
And because of this one line that makes me laugh every time I hear it:
Tony Stark: Dr. Banner, your work is unparalleled. And I’m a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.
Bruce Banner: Thanks.
