Him: "Hey! I'm Mark."
*the hamster wheel in my head spins* Me: "Oh yeah, like the Mark in--what's that show?--"The Hogan Family"? Weren't there twins on that show? I feel like there were. And, one of them was named Mark, right?
Him: "Wow. I have no idea what you're talking about."
Me: "That show! It was on in the '80s. I think Jason Bateman was on it as the older brother. I think it used to be called "Valerie" but then she left and Sandy Duncan joined the cast. Remember?
Him: "No, man. I honestly have no clue."
Me, undeterred: "Mark! Like, the mark that a pen makes on a piece of paper??"
Him: "Yeah, I guess. Sure."
Then, he walked away.
Apparently, I am terrible at making any sort of fucking sense. HOWEVER, I just googled it and it's a real thing. See?
