Let’s just forget the fact that I think I’m probably the weirdest person on planet earth. – Truly – And then imagine how surprised I am when every now and again my life will get into this comfy little zone of sewing and crocheting, card making and cookie baking. And for one BRIEF, nearly euphoric moment, that makes me want to jump up n’ down and shout, “Wow, I’m normal!” Life being life comes up with a big ‘ol calloused hand of reality and wallops me up side my head and says, “Uh huh, nice try bitch.”
If you read my post from yesterday, you know that I finally broke down and got “real” t.v. in my home courtesy of those “Wascally Rabbit Ears.”
If you missed it, click on the highlighted link. Please and thank you.
Being the weirdest person on planet earth I’m all about “signs.” Signs like the very first show that came on the t.v. once the “ears” were in place, was a cop show featuring Macomb County, Michigan. Being a Michigan girl, this made me smile and inwardly solidified my purchase of this antenna. Yes. This was meant to be.
– Told you.. Weirdest person on the planet… –
Having an antenna and not cable or dish means the channels show up much differently, in that, they’re not just one number or two or three. No. My channels come up with the letter D in front of them, then numbers, all except one channel, QVC.
Side note: Having that letter D in front of the numbers makes punching in channel 2, 4 or 7 impossible since our remote doesn’t have letter options on it. Not a big deal but you definitely have to channel surf.
QVC for most people is an online shopping network. For us, it’s all of the old games shows, complete with old commercials from as far back as black and white t.v. all the way up to the 70’s and early 80’s. So I’m kicking back “channel surfing” and come across this channel and the old game show “Beat The Clock.” I’m basking in childhood memories (mostly about those commercials) and watching as the game show host, Monty Hall struggled while asking a relationship question to a couple who were clearly “living in sin.” In fact, Monty said, rather awkwardly “I don’t know how to ask these questions to couples in your situation.” Like living together was a disease.
It made me laugh.
Enter another layer of my never-ending well of weirdness revealed.
Curiosity killed this cat. I had to Google AND Facebook this couple.
I KNOW!!!! I surprised my own self with this depth of weirdness!
But, I had to know! Monty was so condescending to them and I just wanted to know if they made it.
Did they stay together? Did they fall to the wayside of others who partook of the “try before you buy” relationship experiment??
And yessssss! They made it! They stayed together. Married, grandbabies, and business partners with a Facebook page!
So, in your face Monty Hall!
(For this couple that I don’t know personally but felt compelled to stalk online in the here and now…)
And there you have it folks. Another layer of weirdness revealed. Let the “you’re a freak” comments begin. It’s okay. You’ll say nothing I’ve not already said to myself..
Maybe this whole t.v. thing wasn’t such a great idea after all..
Yep. I’m that friend…
Side note: When I went to this couple’s Facebook page I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who had “stalked” this couple. Several people made reference to their “Beat The Clock” appearance.
So, maybe I’m not the weirdest person on planet earth…
