My husband is brilliant. He was valedictorian of his humongous high school. He graduated with high honors from UT with his engineering degree. He does calculus for fun. He has a subscription to Popular Mechanics. He can fit ten times as many dishes in the dishwasher than I can fit. The man is super smart.
Today I confessed to my husband that I want new silverware because I did not like the dull tines of our forks. His head slanted like Scooby Doo as he asked me what word I had just used. I told him 'tines'? He said he had never heard that word before in his entire life. At that point it was more logical for me to assume I had just made up that word, than it was for me to assume I had just used a real word he did not know.
