I was making Pad Thai; he was doing dishes.
Ken (out of the blue): You should write a murder mystery…
Me (mentally): Um. Where can this be going?
Ken: …about an actor who looks like he commited suicide with a starter pistol.
Me: Um. Sadly, something like that actually happened…
Ken: Yeah. It was some lame 80s show—
Me: Hey! I liked that show! The female lead was hot. [brief pause] I can’t remember the name of the show, though. Or her name.
[Thirty second later]
Me: But his name was Jon-Erik Hexum.
Ken (fondly): You really are special, aren’t you?
(It was Cover Up, and the female lead was Jennifer O’Neill. But I had to look that up. Honest.)
