One way I’m annoying

My husband and I argued about one of my most annoying habits last week: I talk during TV shows. And movies, too. Though I don’t talk at the movie theater because I’m not a monster.

These guys have my dream job.

I love dissecting a show with a friend, even if we have to pause the show to gather our collective thoughts. I love to talk about how the current episode references previous episodes, where the episode is paying homage to other shows or movies, what other things I’ve seen the actors in. I love to talk about the character arcs, story arcs, inconsistencies, and outright mistakes. But I do stay on-topic. This isn’t random conversation.

Pam from True Blood was one of the snobby pregnant bitches in Romy & Michele. How can I be quiet about that?

My husband prefers to watch TV in silence. His reactions are minimal. If he chuckles a little, I know we’ve found a winner.

Bruno made him chuckle four times, and for-real-laugh twice, so it's obviously HILARIOUS.
Bruno made him chuckle a few times and for-real-laugh at least twice, so it’s obviously HILARIOUS.

If he ever leaves me, my chattiness will be one of the reasons why.

This is the only way I'm quiet.
This is what I look like when I don’t have anyone to talk TV with.

The more I try to be quiet, the more I feel like talking. If you can’t talk about it, you might as well be watching TV by yourself

    Like Castle often has references to Firefly.

      Yes, exactly! You HAVE to talk about that while it’s going on.
