The hubster grew up totally sheltered and forced to do things like play his Musical Instrument for hours at a time, kick ass at school, and not watch any TV. Unlike my childhood, which, though sheltered, was not quite so strict.
So basically, he doesn't know anything about pop culture pre-2000 or so.
We are pretty into crossword puzzles, and his lack of knowledge about basic pop culture is a serious handicap to him, and he's always asking me for help on some clues.
Hubby: "What's 'Lucy's landlady'? I think it starts with an E and ends with an L."
Me: "Ethel. You know, from 'I Love Lucy'."
Hubby: "What is that, a show?"
Me: ".....You've never heard of 'I Love Lucy'??"
Hubby: "I think I'm getting it mixed up with another Lucy. Wasn't there a Lucy in the Jetstones or something?"
Me: ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!! "JETSTONES????"
Hubby: "Or maybe....wait, no, there was like a Lucy in that cartoon, right?"
Me: "What cartoon?"
Hubby: "The one with the dog?"
Me: "You mean Snoopy?"
Hubby: "Yeah! Snoopy, that's it."
Seriously, how does a human like my husband even exist? Seriously. I love him. He's so sweet.
