Chris and i don’t get many evenings off together at the minute but when we do, boy do we know how to make the most of them…
This evening for example: I put Toby to bed, Chris puts Rudy to bed, i’m downstairs first, so when get comes in the living room i’m sat drinking beer and painting my toe nails red (because i’m that classy).
We sit not talking to each other for a while, me painting, him singing along to some CD he left playing before we took the boys to bed.
Me: “So what do you fancy doing tonight?…Anything?…”
Him: Carries on singing along to music
Me: “Alright fine, so we’ll just sit here not talking to each other, drinking beer and breathing in the sweet smell of nail varnish fumes whilst listening to metal music that i don’t even know”
Him: “This is Tool. It is not metal.”
Him: “That would be like saying NIN is metal!”
Him: “NIN IS NOT METAL!”
Me: “Well what is it then?”
Him: Reels of a few names of bands that apparently are metal that i haven’t heard of
Me: “I don’t know who any of those are”
Him: “Well, let’s see…like Kiss…oh no wait, that’s more glam rock…well, like…”
Me: audible sigh.
Quality time. You can’t beat it.
Although i’d like to point out i have actually seen NIN live, therefore i believe this conversation demonstrates clearly that you can enjoy music without having a fucking clue what genre it is.
