I need to preface this post by mentioning that we watched all of season 6 of Dexter over the past couple of weekends. Keep this in mind.
Conversation between Eric and I in bed last night:
Me: Ugh, why does he (our son) choose baseball. I like sports with 2 practices on weekdays and 1 game on Saturdays, not sports with practices and games whenever they feel like it, 5 days a week.
Eric: Some parents don't care about anything except their kid's baseball
Me: There are 2 kinds of serial killers: the ones whose parents never paid any attention to them and the ones whose parents MADE them play baseball ALL THE TIME
Eric: And the men whose parents MADE them take ballet
Me: I've never heard of a male serial killer who took ballet. I'm not saying there aren't any, I just haven't heard of them
Me: Maybe they're the ones that don't get caught
Eric: More silence. He's probably wishing I would shut the f* up so he can go to sleep.
Me: We should make him take ballet so that on the *off*chance* he becomes a serial killer, he'll be smart enough to not get caught
Eric: I'm not making him take ballet.
Me: IT'S FOR HIS OWN GOOD
Eric was nice to me this morning, so apparently he's not mad (or not as much as he probably should be) that I suggested that our son has the potential to become a serial killer. Maybe he realizes that if one of our kids is going to turn into a serial killer, our son is the more likely culprit. The girls talk too much to be serial killers. Husband stabbers, maybe. They're hard-core when they don't get their way.
I should probably hide the knives until they all move out. Or stop watching Dexter. Am I the only person who relates EVERYTHING to serial killers after watching this show?
