Actual Incident at my House

A little background info here....
My husband is very knowledgeable on many subjects.
He reads a lot, especially history and has a photographic memory.
Unfortunately the dear boy does not sometimes realize the everyone does not share his enthusiasm at the time.
We have been known to tell annoying teenagers to "Go ask Tom about the Battle of Shiloh" knowing they will be trapped for at least a half hour.
He has the amazing ability to run off an Jehovah's Witness that has come knocking on our door, just by his enthusiasm for imparting information.
Well, the other day , I am getting out of the shower and there is no handy towel.
Dripping wet and in the state of dress that I wore when I first came into this world, I cross the living room on my way to the laundry.
Tom stops me to regale me with a tale about Winston Churchill.
I am so used to this that I stand and wait,nodding my head at appropriate points.
Now wouldn't you think he'd figure that anyone wet and naked in the living room would be on a mission of some sort? Something other that a burning need to hear about a dead man?
sigh....such is love....

Your hubby must be handy to run off those traveling salesmen. Did he even notice you were nakkid or was he too interested in his subject? lol Paula
