The common trope goes: a couple lay in bed together and the woman asks “what are you thinking about?” and the man replies “nothing” to the woman’s frustration.

However, it may be that he is thinking about the Roman Empire, according to a new TikTok trend.

In the trend, a woman films herself asking her significant other how often they think about the Roman Empire. The answer leaves the woman in shock about how little she knew about the goings-on in her partner’s brain.
