Conversations with My Boo

Don't you just love it when you and a friend or loved one are just so in synch that a knowing glance or a brief exchange of words can communicate volumes in a way that others wouldn't understand? In honor of our fourth wedding anniversary, here's a transcript of a little convo I had with Steve the other day:

Me: Guess what?!
Steve: There is no telling with you.
Me: This news is sure to rock your world.
Steve: I have no doubt.
Me: Your 2nd favorite actor is starring in a remake of a film that originally starred your 1st favorite actor.
Steve: (pause) Russell Crow is starring in a remake of a Kevin Costner movie?
Me: Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner! Am I good or what?
Steve: You're pretty pleased with yourself, aren't you?
Me: I am!
Steve: So what movie is it? It's not Dances with Wolves?
Me: No, no. Don't worry. Your precious Wolves remain untampered with for now.
Steve: You better watch your mouth. Dances with Wolves is The Best.
Me: Yeah, yeah, you've mentioned that. Let me be more accurate: He's not so much remaking the film as he is reprising a role made famous by Costner. And Cary Elwes. And an animated fox.
Steve: Robin Hood? What?! That's greatness.
Me: Yeah, it's sure to be an instant classic. But I will always maintain that Disney did it best.
Steve: Of course. You're a ginger kid.

Who's your favorite Robin Hood?
