This morning on the way to work, I realized that one of the CDs we listen to in the Jeep was missing.
Yeah, I know, we're the only people left on the planet who actually buy CDs. I like owning the physical disc and the lyric booklets, okay?
Anyway, this is what happened:
Me: "Did you lose the Awolnation CD?"
The Prince: "No? It should be in the basket with the rest of them."
Me: "It's not. I think you lost it."
The Prince: "You do realize that, most times, when we think something is lost, we end up finding it in one of your 37 purses."
Me: "That's not even close to true. I own about a thousand CDs at this point and I've never lost a single one.* Maybe I lose things sometimes, but I don't lose MYSELF on the way to the store."
*This is a lie
The Prince: "You're really never gonna let that go, are you?"
Me: "I wouldn't count on it."
It was at this point that I took a CD out of the player, put another one in, and then put the first CD in the case of the second one.
The Prince: "DID YOU JUST PUT THE WRONG CD IN THE WRONG CASE?"
Me: "Yeah, you know I do that all the time. This way it's like a lovely little surprise every time you grab a different CD. You think you're getting John Butler Trio, but then it's like SURPRISE! You get Walk the Moon!"
The Prince: "NOOOO. I SPENT LIKE HALF AN HOUR LAST WEEK PUTTING THEM ALL BACK IN THE RIGHT CASES. YOU'RE RUINING EVERYTHING."
The Prince: "AND ARE YOU JUST SHOVING ALL THOSE CDS IN THE SLOT IN THE DOOR? THEY DON'T BELONG THERE. THERE'S A BASKET BEHIND MY SEAT FOR A REASON."
Me: "Fine, fine, I'll put them in the basket."
The Prince: "Put that one you defiled in the correct case first."
Me: "Too late, already put them away."
The Prince: "That CD being in the wrong case is going to bother me all day, you know that, right?"
Me: "I've got bad news for you. All those CDs I just put away? Like, all six of them?"
The Prince: "Yeah?"
Me: "NONE OF THEM ARE IN THE RIGHT CASES. NONE."
The Prince: "You are so walking home from work today."
