Those Are The Answers You Are Looking For

Romantic | January 17, 2016

(The geeky family I’ve married into has gathered for Christmas dinner and is discussing plans to see the new Star Wars movie the next day as a group. I turn to my sister-in-law and point out that I’ve never seen either of their previous trilogies in their entirety.)

Sister-In-Law: *to my husband, her brother* “I’m surprised you haven’t divorced her yet…”

Husband: *at the same time as me* “It’s Stockholm syndrome.”

Me: *at the same time as him* “It satisfies his geeky need for smug superiority.”

Sister-In-Law: “Ah. That explains it.”

Husband: “The Stockholm syndrome or the smug superiority?”

Sister-In-Law: “I’ll accept either.”
