Setting: This late evening in my bedroom. We just finished watching 50 First Dates, my boyfriend for the first time and me for the 50th time, and I was getting ready for my pre-SNL nap.
My boyfriend: I have a question for you, Jordy.
Me: (Silence, because I am trying to train my boyfriend to continue with his stories instead of taking unnecessary pauses)
My boyfriend: (After a pause) If we had a situation like you and I just watched—
Me: I'd dump you.
My boyfriend: You didn't even let me finish!
Me: I'm guessing.
My boyfriend: Anyway, if we had a situation like in the movie we just watched, where one of us lost our short term memory—
Me: I'd dump you. Look, I guessed right! Yay, me!
My boyfriend: What!? So, I would wake up in the morning, and not remember the days before, and think we were still together. . . .
Me: And I would get married to someone else and have kids, but I would continue to text you. If you wanted to hang out, I would just say I was too busy with work that day, and suggest the next day.
My boyfriend: What!? I would take care of you! I would support you and love you, and you would leave me?
Me: (Shrugs) You wouldn't know.
