Seeing as how the The Interwebs are all caught up in OMG LOST STARTS TONIGHT frenzies I thought I might repost a little ditty from last year for all those of you who are new here and who are stuck with spouses that drive you crazy with this show.
The Dr. is a huge fan of Lost. I am not. I took one look at the pre-release commercials and declared that I had enough questions left unanswered with the original Gilligan’s Island and did not need more heaped on by a J J Abrams remake.
So he records it and watches it later. Later meaning when I’m busy doing something else. But over the years I’ve wandered through the room enough to have some grasp, albeit probably somewhat incorrect, of the story line.
Here is what I do to amuse myself while he is minding his own business desperately trying to enjoy his show. I wander in and out and ask annoying questions.
Me: "Isn’t she/he supposed to be dead?"
Him: "It’s a flashback" (blood pressure rises)
Me: "Why are some people off the island and other’s aren’t?"
Him: "It’s the future." (hair stands on end – huffs in my general direction)
Me: "How far in the future because that baby doesn’t look any bigger than it was on the island. Babies grow fast."
Him: "Shut up"
Me: "I thought she/he was killed on the Island, now she’s in the future? "
Him: "It’s the past again!!" Poof his head explodes
THIS is far more entertaining to me than the show ever could be.
