Smug Marrieds: Careful, Lest We Summon It

Blair came downstairs a few minutes ago after having been up in his office talking to my mom on the phone about an issue with her furnace. (The issue being that it's decided to stop working.)

"Your mom's going to come by tomorrow," he said. 

"Okay," I answered, then asked jokingly, "So, were you guys talking about me?"


"Well, why not?"

"You're like Voldemort," said Blair. "We try not to say your name aloud, lest we summon it." 

Anyone else deal with this sort of thing in their marriages? Anyone...??
