Conversations of Real Married People (TM)

A bit ago, I witnessed a conversation between my AP's that focused entirely on how the cat cleans herself and just why exactly she bites at her paws.

And because my mind works in funny ways, that reminded me of an observation I made last summer during our local one act play festival: that HobsonMom and HobsonDad's conversations often sound like they've been pulled out of I'm Herbert - only instead of trying to piece together fragmentary sexual memories, my parents have benign arguments about their surgeries. "No, you had your gall bladder removed before you had carpal tunnel surgery." "Are you sure?" Etc. Their play would be called His Name Was Dr. Townshend. Seriously. *g*

My parents make me love humanity.


Which means that you are a person of nice disposition and sweet temper. I know people who would make the very same kind of conversation into a bitter, misanthropic comedy.
Thank you.

To be perfectly honest, I do have my misanthropic moments. But after years of fan-writing aliens, I generally think people are funny, endearing curiosities. Which is why "amused" is my most common LJ mood. *g*
Heh. I love married people conversations. My own usually center around our cats.
