Somebody once said (and I don't know who the frig it was), "You have to choose your battles. Do you want to be right? Or, do you want to be happy?"
I think about this quote often. Mainly because? I like being right. And, I usually am.
Around here, it's not very hard, people.
At work, my husband and a coworker, Jim, listen to music on satellite radio. And all day long, I hear them saying shit like, "Dude? Who sings this song?" and "Man! This is OLD SCHOOL! When was this song released?"
So yesterday, when the song "Reunited" came on, this was the brilliant commentary that I heard from my desk...
Jim: Wow. I haven't heard this song in a long time.
Hubs: Bet you don't know who sings it!
Jim: Yes, I do. It's that Peabo guy.
Jim: It's...um......Ashford and Simpson.
Jim: Hmmm...it's...uh.......let me think.....uh...it's that band that Philip Bailey sang in.
Me (yelling from the front office): How about it's, I DON'T GIVE A CRAP?!!!
Hubs: (yelling back) You're just jealous because I KNOW and you don't! Hehe...
Me: This isn't a competition! There are no prizes involved!
Me: Who the hell is it, already!? Put me out of my misery!
Hubs: (sticking his chest out, all smug and shit) IT CAME OUT IN 1979 AND IT'S SUNG BY A GROUP CALLED PEACHES AND CREAM!
Jim: Peaches and Cream? I never heard of them.
Me: That's because THEY don't exist, you DING DONGS! The name of the band is Peaches & Herb!
Hubs: *disbelieving stare*
Me: Yeah, that's right! Who's smarter than me? UHHHH...NOBODY IN THIS ROOM! Bahahaha!
Hubs: Damn it. Even when I'm kinda right, I'm wrong.
Jim: That happens a lot around here.
