How to justify why we knit while watching TV

A quote from someone on Ravelry:

"I went to a marriage conference taught by a psychologist, and he said that men love when we just sit with them while they're doing something like watching tv, but it's hard for women to just sit and not talk too much. Maybe knitting is the solution."

Yup, I definitely fit in the category of not being able to sit and not talk. Knitting keeps me from getting fidgety, especially when we're watching a movie that I dont like. If the lights in the cinema weren't so dim, I'd knit there too. Maybe I should keep practicing knitting without looking. Let's start with my simple garter stitch Chantilly baby blankie.
