I Don’t Get It (Post #18)

Filed under: Me Me Me — Tense @ 4:30 pm

I really don’t get the things that men like to watch on TV… Geek is presently watching some boring Al Boreland (a la Home Improvement) looking guy shaping wood pieces on a lathe. The host of the show (???) hardly even talks, and when he does, it’s sleep-inducing. Why in hell is he watching this?! Geek doesn’t make his own table legs, nor does he possess the tools to do so… Then, why bother?! But, he is enthralled.

He also likes to watch shows about Mars and all the other planets and meteors and stars, and I find them excruciatingly dull. And what about the shows about dinosaurs? They’ve been dead for millions of years; let them rest in peace! Oh, now Al Boreland is making a baby rattle out of wood. How fascinating.

I wonder which shows that I like to watch which make him cringe. I’ve never heard him complain that I can remember. He does get upset at my need to watch the news; it just pisses him off, but I like to feel somewhat connected to what’s going on in the world. I know he gets tired of the constant barrage of kids’ shows to which we subject ourselves in order to keep the Littleone happy, but so do I. I don’t subject him to girly soap operas or tons of sitcoms or Big Brother. He ought to be happy with me, huh?



  1. What is it with guys and The History Channel? I don’t get it either.

  3. HoosierGirl – I can take some of the History stuff, but not a lot

    Chatty – Yeah, be careful. He might be writing down ideas!
