Are You the Gatekeeper?

Inspired by Michelle’s post about her hubby, I thought I’d share a dialog that happened this morning:

[Shawn and Donna are walking into the school for work, Shawn has a key to the front door]

Donna: You know, I’m just using you for your key…
Shawn: That makes sense, I am the keymaster. Are you the gatekeeper?
Donna: No, I’m the Lemon Merchant (see below).
Shawn: (in maniacal Ren voice) Don’t worry… I’LL SAVE YOU!

I love that the conversation would make no sense to anyone, and even with the aid of the links above, you may be more than a little confused. But it reminded me how lucky I am to have such a cool wife and best friend. πŸ™‚

  1. I love having exchanges like that with my Hubby..but ours are usually Python related (or Star Trek..but that goes without saying)

  2. Those darn marmosets! How can anyone peddle lemons or cheese, or keep track of keys for that matter, with them around. I’m envious that my wife does not have the geeky vocabulary to hold a conversation like that.

  3. My hub and I are geeky too — our conversations range thru Matrix, Star Trek and Star Wars, Monty Python and Lois McMaster Bujold books… it’s kinda hard for the average bystander to follow.

  4. My husband and I have our own conversation fillers too, normally taken from films like Lord of the Rings, Matrix, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Dodgeball, and many many more. Sometimes we have inside jokes which make no sense for anyone except the two of us. I like that, as it makes me feel special.

  5. I took me awhile to get that! Haha! I guess my hubs and I too have our own inside jokes and dialogue that would make no sense whatsoever to anyone else. Plus, you can’t really explain them. If you do, it just isn’t funny anymore and the magic is gone! πŸ˜€
