Husband: (enters from kitchen) Hey, did you hear what Niece K wants to be when she grows up? (opens up laptop)
Me: (typing, doesn’t look up) I already made the reference and he didn’t get it.
(Husband plays Dentist Song from Little Shop of Horrors)
(Boys watch in WTF)
Alpha: What the hell was that?
Husband: A song from a movie.
Beta: What kind of movie has a song about a dentist hurting people?!
Husband: A movie about a plant. A talking plant. That eats people.
Beta: (pauses) It is not. You’re lying.
Me: He’s not. It was a play called Little Shop of Horror, they turned it into a movie. The the plant talks and is called Audrey Two.
Beta: (stares) You are both totally lying to me.
Me: (starts laughing) It does sound like something we’d lie about.
Husband: I wouldn’t believe me either.
