My Mom has been in the hospital and it's been pretty emotionally taxing on everybody and coming home from Sioux Falls the other night, I was pretty spent both emotionally and physically. The simple 60 mile drive was already getting old for a person who bikes everywhere.
I think to keep our sanity up, we started playing the "That cloud looks like .... " game. After finding a rubber ducky cloud, a My Little Pony cloud, and various others, The following conversation then took place.
Laura: That cloud looks like a whale whose tail popped out of the water.
Me: No way! That is totally the U.S.S. Enterprise.
Laura: Oh I can see that!
Me: *humming the theme song to Star Trek*
--pause for a bit as we rode in silence--
Me: You know that someday after Big Bang Theroy goes off the air there will be a trivia game about it, don't you?
Laura: We will totally rock at that!
Me: No doubt about that.
-- More silence as we drove along --
Me: Do you have any idea how that whole series of thought tie together?
Laura: Let's see....U.S.S Enterprise Cloud - Humming the theme song to Star Trek -- Big Bang Theory trivia -- You was thinking about the episode of Big Bang Theroy where Sheldon played the Star Trek theme on that "thingy".
Me: ABSOLUTELY! Only you could have pieced that together. Don't spend too much time in my head, it's a scary place. The only thing you missed is that I had to think about the name of the "thingy" -- it's called a Theremin -- and that's where I came up with the need for a trivia game.
Do Laura and I spend too much time together? Absolutely. We wouldn't have it any other way.
