Five Stupid Things About American Idol
Every once in a while he glances up and makes a comment, and it's just a reminder that my very old fashioned, very square but adorable husband does not get it. But perhaps he pays more attention than I think. Examples:
Lydia: "I think you mean Ja Rule."
Cap'n: "What are you even talking about?"
Lydia: "Ja Rule is a rapper. He's currently experiencing some legal difficulties."
Cap'n: "Isn't this him here? With Jennifer? Does Marc Anthony know about this? I don't know about this guy. He really should follow the J.A. rule and stay out of trouble. And don a shirt."
Lydia: "I couldn't agree more."
Cap'n: "Who is that singing? I like that. He sounds like Anita Baker."
Lydia: "That's Jacob Lusk. I just love him. Look! Look at him sing! Can't you feel how much he cares?"
Cap'n: [looks concerned about Jacob's well-being] "God heavens. What's wrong with him? He looks like he has the poo lock up when he holds a note."
Lydia: "Why did you say that? WHY?" [closes eyes and shakes head in failed attempt to rid brain of of Jacob's constipation]
