Sometimes, he doesn't understand my references, like when I used an oft spoken phrase, "paint by numbers."
He also didn't know that Spinal Tap was a movie. I should lend him my copy.
So, let's talk about that overtly cromulent phrase, in case any of my readers are ill informed on it's meaning and etymology.
In the 1970's, before video games, computers, twitter, and other forms of social media were all over the place. We had things like water color, crayons, Lite Brite, and board games to keep us busy. Now, water colors could be used on paint by numbers books. In those books, they printed outlines of pictures with numbers inside of the crevices.
