Why I'm Not a Hipster Reason #274

Actual Conversation Yesterday:

The Beard shows me this picture/caption of Ron & Hermione-

"When two people are in love with each other but are too shy to admit it, although they still show it."

"Awwwwww cute right?!!!" - Beard

{He always expects like extra credit for showing me HP stuff. It shouldn't be extra. He should be just as obsessed with it as I am.}

"Awwww! Wait. Wait...... that's what skinny love means?" - me

"Yeah. Like when you like each other but don't say it and it's like fragile you know?" - Beard

{Also he kind of IS a hipster and loves this song and Bon Iver.}

"Ohhhhh..... I just thought it was like his girlfriend was really tiny or whatever." - me.

"Oh my...! Are you serious?!" - Beard *Embarrassed shock and laughter*

In case you aren't familiar with the song, here it is. I think I'm justified in thinking he's singing about his girlfriend. I never "get" the "deep, intellectual, symbolic" meanings of folk/hipster music.

The Beard has written one song about me and I hate it because it sounds so sad and depressing.
"No it's a beautiful love song! It's deep."
Sure it is. Sure.
Maybe I just want a love song that is pretty straightforward and awesome like this, then. Will you give it a try, Beard?
Sorry, this is my new favorite song. Yes, I'm embarrassed. No, I'm never going to stop loving it.


  1. Your husband officially has way better taste in music than you do.

  2. Love Bon Iver. Speaking of good music and love songs ... have you heard, bought and listened to Mirrors by Justin Timberlake a million times like me? I'm obsessed.

  3. I also love that song Danica! And yes, I am also embarrassed about it. :)

  4. Hahaha I thought it was that too. I never paid close enough attention to the words.. Thanks for clearing that up. And for reals, jake always thinks hp or 30 rock quotes gets him points. Which it kind of does... But he really should love it as much as me.

  5. I LOVE ONE DIRECTION! :) Wow I finally started listening to them recently and it brought back my boy band love days (All the way back to N*SYNC and Backstreet Boys, that's right! haha)
