A Conversation.

In the truck, on the way home from Cary, discussing our evening.

Husbo: I don't mind coming, I just wanna be with you.
Me: You know someone wrote a song about that one time.
H: Who's that?
M:  'N Sync.  It's  called "I Just Wanna Be With You." Remember that one?
H: No. I don't know the difference between any of those groups.
M: That's why you married me.  I know all the differences.
H: Who sang "I Want it That Way?"
M: Backstreet Boys.
H: What about "Hit Me Baby One More Time?"
M: Blasphemy.
H: What about "Bye Bye Bye Bye Bye?"
M: 'N Sync but it's only 3 "byes."
H: I'm pretty sure they say it 5 times.

Husband is met with an incredulous stare.

M: Are you seriously questioning my boy band trivia?
H: It goes Bye, Bye, Bye, Bye, Bye.  (Said with accompanying hand gesture.)

I dig through my purse furiously to find my phone. 

M: Siri! Play Bye, Bye, Bye.

Siri obliges. Husbo hands me the aux cable to play through the speakers.  Song plays.  Upon reaching the first chorus, they sing Bye Bye Bye and then two echoed "Byes" play.

H: See?  5.
M: No.  They sing it 3 times and then there are effects that add a couple echoes.  The title of the song only has 3!

Song continues to play. I begin to do the dance moves from the music video.

H: You're getting way too in to these moves.

 I'm not listening due to continued dancing.  Song eventually ends. Conveniently we have just turned onto our street.

H: Well at least you got to get that out of your system. I think we're both right though.
M: About what? I need to use the bathroom before we go.

Try to focus on something other than the enormous turtleneck.
