And That's Why I Killed Him

So this really happened.

ME: Today is Douglas Adams' 61st birthday and...

HIM: Oh no! Did we send him a card?

ME: No, cause he's dead. But anyway...

HIM: I didn't even know he was sick.

ME: It's Douglas Adams' 61st birthday and Google has a doodle.

HIM: Who is Doug Adams?

ME: Seriously? You know, Douglas Adams??!!

HIM: Grizzly Adams?

ME: No.

HIM: The Addams Family?

ME: *sigh* No. Just think about it a minute. Douglas Adams....Towel Day....get it?

HIM: No. Who is Doug Adams?

ME: Douglas Adams...Hitchhiker's Guide the Galaxy. Towel Day. Now you get it right?

HIM: No.

ME: Well, when you're cool, you always know where your towel is. Douglas Adams is a big deal.

HIM: Yeah, for geeky people like you.

ME: But didn't you read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

HIM: I tried once, but it sucked.

ME: And that's why I killed him, Officer.
