Helping my wife put on a necklace today I said, “We should get you a tattoo right here on the back of your neck. Something Shakespeare. We will all laugh at gilded butterflies.”
(That’s the quote that hottie Megan Fox has tattooed on herself, for the curious.)
“Lear,” my wife replied.
“…” I said.
“What?” she asked.
“…” I said again. “Was that just a really lucky guess?”
“No. Gilded butterflies. King Lear. I remember hearing that.”
Made my day. My wife is not a Shakespeare geek, so a Lear reference is no small feat. “That was awesome,” I told her. “Do that more often and I’ll buy you stuff.”
