Testing my patience

When I met the tall, blue-eyed, incredibly attractive young man who would one day become my husband, the guy who pretty much gave me heart palpitations as we talked about bands like Yo La Tengo and Pavement, I never imagined that, years later - specifically, two minutes before presidential candidate Barack Obama's special 30-minute program was set to air on national television - I'd find him on our living room couch, not watching the political commentary we've become so obsessed with lately, but instead immersed in the film version of "Jesus Christ Superstar," announcing loudly, "This is my favorite song. This one's MY FAVORITE!"
