Ratting Out Ignorance

| Romantic | May 24, 2014

(My husband and I are driving home from the aquarium, and we are discussing animals. We somehow get on the topic of hamsters being mammals.)

Husband: “I keep forgetting that hamsters are mammals.”

Me: “… You do know that ALL rodents are mammals, right?”

Husband: *surprised* “Really?”

Me: “What did you think they were?”

Husband: “I don’t know, I thought they were their own thing. I never took biology. Don’t judge me!”

(From then on, it turned into a running joke in which, whenever he would make a comment about rodents, he would add “which are not mammals”, then I would tell him that they ARE, and he would act surprised.)
