The things we discuss when working a puzzle

Who likes to work a puzzle? If you don't then we kinda think you've never worked one with us. All kinds of topics come up and we just have a great time. I was at my mothers house tonight working our 2,000 piece puzzle with her and my brother and I mentioned I had seen The Great Gatsby trailer. My brother asked who wrote the novel and I answered that it was someone who wasn't that famous. My mother countered with a no and that it was someone famous. So wikipedia we went.

In case you didn't know F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby. My mother said "see it is someone famous". Which prompted my brother to ask her to name another novel he wrote. She couldn't but she was on and eventually said The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I was on wiki still and I said "what?! He most certainly did not!" That is when I noticed she was on imdb and said that maybe the two movies share the same screenwriter. She said she searched F. Scott Fitzgerald. I laughed at her and then named the other 3 novels the real F. Scott Fitzgerald penned, one of them being Tender Is The Night. I sang the words Tender Is The Night and my brother corrected me saying it was Lonely Is The Night. My brother pondered if he remembered correctly that Lonely Is The Night was sung by Billy Squier and wouldn't you know, he is correct. We youtubed this video and listened as we continued our work on the puzzle.
