Jed and I are a funny pair to watch TV with. We don't watch very much, but usually we catch some of the talk shows before bed at night. Undoubtedly one of us, if not both of us, gets stuck trying to figure out who the guest looks like.
"Does he look like someone to you?"
"Yeah, I was just thinking that. Who is it?"
"I don't know, but it's killing me."
"Hmm. Is it a little bit of ________?"
"Maybe. I don't think that's it though."
Finally we'll figure it out. Most of the time we agree, but plenty of times we'll shut each other down. "No way. Absolutely not. That is not it."
Last night Reese Witherspoon was the guest.
"Does she look like someone to you?" I said.
"Yes. I just didn't know if I wanted to figure it out." (poor sport)
"Who is it?" (I think maybe I came up with it. A little bit of my cousin Lindsey and a little bit of Hazel's kindergarten teacher. Both of them have dark hair. I haven't told Jed. He might shut me down.)
Another funny part about watching TV with Jed and me is that we cannot abide poorly made ads.
Jayne: I cannot believe someone actually made that.
Jed: People actually sat in a board room and decided that would be awesome.
No! Old Navy Mannequins!
Jayne: Seriously. Someone paid money for that.
Jed: I am so angry.
Arby's greasy hamburger commercial! Change it!
Jayne: Those are the Good Things Utah ladies.
Jed: (sings) Good things Utah, where the good things are!
J&J: (laughing) they seriously came up with "good things Utah, where the good things are."
Jed: Come on! You can always tell a local commercial.
Jayne: Wait...isn't that you hocking mattresses Jed?
I tell you, you'd have fun with us. Jed is especially great company during America's Funniest Home Videos. I'd invite you to join, but the only TV we have hooked up (with rabbit ears....I know, I know, digital blah blah switch blah blah) is in our bedroom. And I'm trying to enforce the "stay in your own bed" rule. But you could bring a sleeping bag and put it next to the bed.
Want to see the cool Heinz commercial Jed made? Yes or no?
