I was sitting at the kitchen table this morning, eating my cereal, reading the newspaper and minding my own business; when my wife walked in and asked me if I liked the movie we watched last night. We want to go see The Bourne Ultimatum; but, we decided we should first watch The Bourne Identity (which I hadn't seen before) and The Bourne Supremacy (which neither of us has seen). So, last night, we watched The Bourne Identity on DVD.
In between chews, I mumbled that yes, I did like the movie. Then she asked "do you think Matt Damon is cute?"
I stopped eating, I looked her straight in the eye and said "that's an awkward question" and then resumed eating my bowl of cereal.
She replied "yeah, I know" ... "but do you?" I just looked at her sheepishly. She then smiled and said "I got the answer to my question" and left the room.
How am I supposed to respond to questions like that? Somebody, please help me out here. I have 3 sisters, I've been married to a girl for 27 years, I have raised 2 daughters - and the only conclusion I'm able to come up with is that girls are weird! They are a mystery that continues to elude me.
I mean, how would she react if I said "oh baby, get me some ice, because he is dang hot!"? OK, maybe that was a little over the top. But, he is most definitely eye candy. However, when asked questions like that, I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place.
So, yes. Matt Damon is cute. In fact, I might even go so far as to say Matt Damon is hot! Satisfied???
