On delicious cake!  
J's birthday was yesterday, but we ran out of energy after seeing Iron Man and out of hunger after eating tapas. So I held off buying his cake until today. For the last few hours I have been suggesting to J he might like to have cake now. His reply has been "Later".

A few minutes ago, I went into the study, where he is playing Internet Spaceships. "F1 qualifying is on in half an hour, so why don't I give you a heads-up 10 minutes before and we will watch it with delicious cake!"

"Mmm hmmm," he replied, absorbed in something intergalactic.

"Did you hear anything I just said?" I asked, amused.

"Ye-es!" he replied with an eye roll.

Thirty seconds later there is a harumph from the living room, which I, taking a personal moment in the adjacent lavatory, hear clearly. "So," he says, "is this how you greet me with delicious cake!"

I emerge and shake my head at him. "I very clearly outlined the plan of 11pm qualifying, 10.50pm, delicious cake. It is currently 10.30, you did not listen to a word I said, did you?"

"Yes I did!" he protested. "I heard qualifying, delicious, and cake!"

I knew that you would sympathise.

Just remember what Mama Bubba always says: "When he attaches the penis he detaches the brain"

I gave him points for honesty ...

Hey! You had to give him at least a little break, it was his birthday after all. Just because he doesn't listen to every word, doesn't mean he loves you less then completely.

I assume that about 20% of words that are said are actually heard when there are spaceships involved. On the upside, the cake was, indeed, delicious!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm cake!

LOL - I suspect J and C might be soul twins separated at birth, or maybe it's just a boy thing?
