The final fate of Sally Struthers
Yesterday I woke at 1:15 pm which means I woke up late! Sunday is football day in my house and I hate being late for the 1:00 o'clock kick off on my couch.
Please sing along and feel free to use your own music: When I'm late for work, I don't care.
When I'm late for an appointment, I don't care.
When people are waiting for me outside in the snow, I really don't care, but when I'm late for my couch on Sundays, I care. I really fucking careeeeeeeeeee (the song works a lot better if you actually sing it, I suggest you try singing it as if you were Carol King).
So this morning when I woke up at 1:15, I jumped out of bed and almost killed myself, and our two cats on my way into the living room. When I got to the living room, which took me less then 10 seconds, I found my wife and our friend Erika sitting on the couch watching the Gilmore Girls. " Let me get this straight, It's Sunday afternoon at 1:15, I haven't had so much as a sip of coffee, Two football games are on TV right now, and you guys are watching the Gilmore Girls? Are you kidding me"? I had to do everything in my power to resist putting my head through the TV.
Don't get me wrong, the Gilmore Girls is actually a pretty funny show. The town folk are the biggest group of freaks on television right now, and freaks are always a plus in my book. Both Sebastian Back, and Sally Struthers have recurring characters on the Gilmore Girls and how can one not truly love Sally Struthers? My wife recently borrowed five seasons of the Gilmore girls from one of her friends so it's all Gilmore, all the time at my house right now, and that's cool (anything to make my wife happy) but not on Sundays, at least not until March (My wife actually likes football, so this story is a bit misleading, and definitely intentionally sexist).
After I threw my temper tantrum, sang my song and stormed off, my wife turned off the Gilmore Girls and called me back into the living room by 1:30. I think I scared the life out of Erika though, because she was waving goodbye to me as I came out of the bedroom. "Sorry about that Erika, I can be such a baby at times".
