So, yesterday I get home from work to find Alex sitting on the couch, freshly showered, and watching his new favorite show, Spongebob Squarepants. Notice I said Alex, and not Gideon. Gideon was at my mother-in-law's, and his cartoon of late is the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I have become used to my husband's regularly watched channels: History Channel, CNN, Travel Channel, but I did not realize that Nickelodeon had become one of them. I mean, I know I have come home and realize that he is singing the Wonder Pets theme song, or amusing Gideon with his own dorky version of "Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum...delicioso!" from Dora the Explorer. But that is all usually for Gideon's enjoyment, or because he has that Diego's rescue pack song stuck in his head AGAIN. (which, by the way, is very catchy, with a salsa beat)
His reasoning for comparing me to the squid cartoon character? Because Squidward does not understand Spongebob's silly humor, as I apparently do not understand Alex's need for silly humor. Now, you might think that perhaps my husband would feel slightly ashamed for his love of a sponge with no pants. But he is shameless. He thinks it is hysterical.
