Bedtime chats

Are we the only people who talk like this?

Me: Bri, I was reading about the female brain today. Did you know that the prefrontal cortex doesn't typically develop completely until the age of 22 in women?

Bri: Really? What's the prefrontal cortex?

Me: It's the part of the brain primarily responsible for executive functioning and making sure that a person's behavior or actions sync up with their internal sense of self.

Bri: huh.

Me: So...I'm thinking that you kind of took advantage of my under-developed brain when you asked me to marry you. Heck, we were married and had 2 kids by the time I was 22. You just wanted me barefoot and pregnant before my brain was fully developed...didn't you?

Bri: Whew. It worked out for me. (Long Pause). Actually, I don't think I was that concerned with your brain.

Me: Oh. I'm guessing there were other body parts you were more concerned about when you proposed then?

the vagina is an equally compelling, intelligent body part as the prefrontal cortex, i must say : )
