When I’m Right and You’re Wrong
He still hasn’t learned, I keep hoping one day it will sink in but alas it has not. I’ve tried to explain to him that I am the movie guru and I have an abundance of movie knowledge. Nothing useful in everyday life but I tend to remember obscure stuff like some minor character in some movie that nobody else saw like 15 years ago.
Of course every time he thinks he recognizes some guy in some movie he becomes adamant he knows who it is and what he was in. 99.999% of the time he’s wrong and I’m right but that never stops him. Like last night:
Him: What was that Holocaust movie with that guy and that kid?
Me: Jacob the Liar?
Him: Yeah, it had Adam Brody in it.
Me: You mean Adrian Brody?
Me: You mean The Pianist?
Him: No, Jacob the Liar.
Me: I think that had Robin Williams in it.
Him: No, that guy with the nose.
Me: That’s The Pianist!!! That’s not what you are talking about!
*As usual I go and look it up on imdb.com and show him The Pianist and Jacob the Liar and that he’s wrong
Him: You know, that guy with the nose he was playing games with his son.
Me: *sigh/rolleyes/groan* You’re talking about Life is Beautiful.
Him: Does that have Adam Brody in it?
I still have to have faith he’ll learn someday, he will…right?
