Mr FD works from home and so he has lots of opportunity to go through the TV scheduling and to record programs. He sent me a text message telling me that he had taped “The Mystery of the Titanic Solved”. Other people might think this a considerate action by a husband, but I know that Mr FD is evil and always plotting a revolution.
For the past two weeks I have been very verbal with my opinions on the subject of the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic and more precisely, the hordes of Titanic tragics in period costumes going on very expensive memorial cruises. I may have even heard someone wishing that their bloody boat would sink just so they could have the full experience.
I have to also admit that I have never watched Leo and Kate sailing into the sunset on the Titanic. I hate sad movies and I already know the ending so why bother?
So, Mr FD had a nefarious plot afoot and was asking me to lie in front of the speeding chainsaw while he exited stage left to take over the kingdom. I was not going to break into expletives, for I am a goddess after all (though I might smite him with my stick). His message was simple.
“I have taped the Mystery of the Titanic Solved for you.”
FD: “It sank?”
Mr FD : “Some kid on board found a big plug and pulled it out.”
FD: “So curiosity sank the boat?”
One can only assume that the cat was up on deck drinking martinis with a French poodle.
