>While I read How to Read Literature Like a Professor yesterday afternoon, the phone rang. Husband answered.

"It's Rebecca," he said and brought me the phone.

My cousin is a writer, so I thought I'd show off what I learned thus far. "Did you know that rain is a symbol of cleansing in literature?" I said, rather than "Hello."

She started to reply, when Husband shouted, "So's douche!!!"

My chest puffed with pride. We are so erudite in my household.
