Consider This My Victory Dance
"Your grandma gave us those bowls?"
"Yeah. I remember because she didn't usually like to buy new things to give as gifts."
"Huh. Yeah, they don't seem like her style. It's a good thing I have you around, otherwise I'd never remember anything. The only thing I can remember your grandma giving us is that blue pitcher/vase thing from Pinecroft."
"What are you talking about? You mean the one that says 'Sandam' on it?"
"No that one is gray. You know, the blue pitcher. It has a handle, and it's from Pinecroft."
"We don't have a blue pitcher from Pinecroft."
"Yes, we do. I know we do."
"I think you're remembering a bunch of other things and putting it all together in your head."
"No, I have a really specific memory of this pitcher."
"We have a blue pitcher that we got for our wedding, but it's not from Pinecroft. And we have the 'Sandam' vase that my grandma got us, and that's from Pinecroft, but it's not blue."
"Let me look for it. Is it down here? No..."
"Is this the one you're talking about?"
"No, I know that's the one we got for our wedding. No, it's like the 'Sandam' one, but blue. And with a handle. Where is it?"
"You're remembering wrong again."
"No, it's here somewhere. Aha! This one!"
"See? It's blue and it has a handle."
"And it's from Pinecroft."
"And your grandma gave it to us."
"'Oh, Mike never remembers anything. You're just remembering a bunch of other things and making it up in your head.' Ha ha! I feel like I could do a little dance."
"OK, fine, sometimes you're right."
I didn't actually do a dance, mind you. This is way more obnoxious.
I love you, honey!
