...you start confusing people on tv for your friends.
Let me 'splain.
A few years ago, we went to visit some people who shall remain nameless to protect our relationship.
Steve and I got quite a number of chuckles over comments like this, "Did you see what he was wearing?" "Did you hear what she said about...?"
These kinds of conversations should apply to people we know.
Not news anchors.
Not when referring to them using first names only.
Not completely out of context, several hours after broadcast.
Snicker, snicker, sigh, roll eyes. Feel superior.
Here's how I know I have officially gotten old. While checking out one of my new favorite blogs, Sussing Out Lost, I discovered Jorge Garcia has a blog. I went to Jorge's blog and found out that Duff and the crew made the cake for Lost's 100th episode.
I yelled this.
I yelled, "Hurley has a blog and Duff made the cake!"
The best (or worst) thing about this rite of passage?
Just so you know that I have truly crossed the line. Mary Alice is my favorite. She makes me laugh. I want to be her friend. And I would have thrown the hot pocket too, Hurley.
