As I’ve discussed previously, I’m on my own because my wife took off for a girls only trip to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. As such, I’m finding various things to do to irritate her while she is gone. Today I’m thinking I might watch some TV. In particular, I might watch her TV programs.
You see, I normally don’t watch very much TV. Part of that is the fact that I am just not into many programs right now. However, part of that is the fact that my wife watches a number of programs and has control of the TV. I am discouraged from actually watching with her because I tend to ask questions. That is not allowed. Instead, I usually put on earphones and read so we can still at least spend time in the same room.
However, since she isn’t here…maybe I could watch all of her favorite TV programs. Scandal, Revenge, Hell’s Kitchen, stuff like that. I’m not sure which ones have new episodes that my wife hasn’t seen, or even if the shows are on hiatus right now, but I’m sure something she watches has to have new episodes. I don’t really want to watch, but the fun wouldn’t really start until after I’d watched.
For example, perhaps I could send her email messages with hints about what is going on in the respective show. I’m betting that could get me in a bit of trouble.
Or, perhaps I could not tell her what I’m doing. Then, I’d wait until she got back and started catching up. I’d walk through the room and say: Who’d have ever thought that [whatever was about to happen next]?
Now, there’s a fine line here between comedy and my wife murdering me. Let’s hope I can manage that balance. We’ll just have to see. If something happens to me just after she gets back, then you know I got it wrong. Pray for me.
