The Intellectual Life (#12)


A Peek into the Intimate Intellectual Life of a Long-Married Couple, Part 12:

Karen and I are driving through the countryside and see a large herd of cows.

Karen: "Cows."

Brian: "Mooooo."

Brian (louder and deeper): "MOOOOO!"

Brian (in a lovely tenor): "MOOeeeeuuuaaauuuoooOOO!"

Karen looks at Brian quizzically.

Brian: "That's a cow trying to sing 'Oh What a Beautiful Morning' from 'Oklahoma.'"

Karen: "That's oddly specific."

A minute passes.

Brian: "The real question is how a cow would have heard the soundtrack to 'Oklahoma.'"

Another minute passes.

Karen: "MooTube."

Celebratory high fives and fist bumps all around.

This has been another peek into the intimate intellectual life of a long-married couple.
