For that past several weeks I've had to watch "The Office" and "30 Rock" by myself since Jason is in Salem, and I'm at the Family Farm. Both those shows are near and dear to my heart because they make me laugh like nothing else, but it's been a little less laughable watching it by myself. I still laugh. Because I can't stop it. But then there's no one next to me to whom I can immediately repeat the line. It's kind of sad.
And I don't like any part of sad on my Thursday nights. It's all about the laughing.
So last week, after "The Office" ended, I called up Jason and we giggled over our favorite parts (or maybe I just giggled, and he did whatever the male version is of giggled...chuckled? snickered?). Then "30 Rock" came on and we just stayed on the phone. Laughing together. When the show was over, Jason said, "We just watched a show. Over the phone."
In nearly 12 years of marriage, we've never watched a tv show while holding a conversation with each other over the phone. Huh.
So, while living apart during the week pretty much sucks, our Thursday nights aren't half bad. Only six more weeks to go...
