25 Jan What If What??
So I think everyone who watches Grey’s Anatomy will admit to feeling that why am I still watching this show??? feeling every once in a while. And all the husbands can point to an episode where they claim it totally jumped the shark.
And let’s face it, even I probably wouldn’t mind having that 43 minutes back (DVR version) from a few episodes. I mean, hello, the musical one? You’re with me on that one, right??
Anyway, while I don’t object to a little McDreamy, McSteamy, and McYummy (hiya, Avery! xoxo), I think it’s partly because I’m not sure what I would replace it with on the DVR, and that would send our DVR into a wild imbalance of my shows vs. my husband’s shows.
Holy crap, I just realized how sneaky he is. It’s like the new age version of fighting over the clicker—he’s stealing my space on the DVR. He doesn’t need control of the clicker; we don’t watch live TV anymore. (Do they even air live TV still?? Just kidding. Kind of. Whatever, but I’d sure like to see you try to explain to your kids that the show “is not on”) He’s totally squeezing me out!!!
Ok, I’ll deal with him later. Back to my point. Which I don’t think I’ve even started yet. Yikes, this is particularly bad, even for me!
So I was watching Grey’s Anatomy last Thursday, and of course I had to see what was coming up next week (meaning tomorrow), and all of a sudden, there it was:
WHAT IF Derek and Addison were still married?
WHAT IF Meredith Grey had grown up happy?? (this one is almost too shocking to believe!)
WHAT IF? WHAT IF?? WHAT IF?!?!?
The whole episode is set in an alternate reality of what would their lives be like if other events had (or hadn’t) happened.
So I did a little sleuthing and saw that wow, if I were really a true fan instead of the pathetic DVR-hog that I am, I would have seen the articles I linked to above and here—some posted as early as December.
But who cares about that.
The point is, I am the pathetic DVR-hog you see blogging before you, and instead of reading Grey’s fan articles, or watching ABC.com’s previews, I’ve been reading something else that’s suddenly sounding verrry similar.
WHAT IF I told you what that is right now?
WHAT IF we continue this conversation tomorrow?
WHAT IF YOU got to choose?!?!
HOLY MIND EXPLOSION!!!
Choose this in the comments—clicker vs. remote? I say clicker.
OMG WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME???
I clearly missed the coming in TWO weeks part of the teaser. I should have known something was wrong when I read it was for February sweeps and I was like wow, is it February already? I don’t think so.
But that thought flitted in and out of my head, as so many do, and I moved right along.
WOW. This totally messes with my plan.
WHAT IF I got more than 4 hours of sleep each night?
WHAT IF I actually pulled off a tease, and then gave you what you wanted the very next day???
I guess that really would be an alternate universe!
But you know, this isn’t so bad. Because I have a lot to say on this topic. In fact, so much that I had to cut my post in half last night. It wasn’t even supposed to be a tease. I was just getting too blabby. And you know if I’m saying that, it must be true.
Therefore, I will take this time—these next 8 days*—to discuss my thoughts on WHAT IF?!?!?!?!
*Please note this is NOT a commitment to blog daily for the next 8 days. I’m sure you are grateful for that.
