i ate bacon once...

Apparently, according to some, I have the habit of occasional random comments. I guess I am so arrogant, that I believe you all should just always know what I'm talking about. I dated a guy about 9 years ago who was 7 years older than me (and at 21, that was something!) and was a good date planner. Weird at the actual relationship, but he knew how to plan a good date. Don't get me wrong, he was a really great guy, just not for me and I wasn't the gal for him either.

On one of our dates, he took me to a drive-in movie in Argo. It's always stuck with me because it was kind of cool to go to a drive-in movie. Anyhoo, there is a police station close to our home that was under renovations around the time Eric and I had just gotten married. It had to be early in our marriage (like we've been married that long!) 'cuz there were no carseats in the car. The company responsible for the construction was Argo Properties. Every time I passed the building I would think of my drive-in movie experience.

One day, when we were in the car together, I thought I would share my experience with my new husband. So, I stated, "I've been to a drive-in movie." This might not strike you as the most random comment made, but it was out of the blue and I think I interrupted my husband. Since we had not been married long enough for him to understand how my mind worked, the only reply he could think of was, "I ate bacon once." He thought we were just sharing random details from our past. It took me some time for me to explain the connection to the building to him.

So now, whenever someone makes a completely random and unexpected comment, either Eric or I will say, "I ate bacon once." It's our code for, "What?! How does that relate?"
