Tracey asked me last night what I was planning on doing on MLK day, since I don’t have to work. I listed the following things: watch Pride and Prejudice (the A&E version), watch the premiere episodes of Armed and Famous, do laundry, unpack my suitcase from Christmas vacation, and take down the Christmas tree along with assorted other holiday decor. And take a nap. Well, Tracey, I only accomplished two of these things. Armed and Famous and napping. That’s right – my priorities are super straight. Oh, well.
Armed and Famous was entertaining, but mostly because I am from Muncie. I think if I wasn’t predisposed to like it for sentimental reasons, I would find it inane. However, I am nothing if not sentimental, and got excited when I saw the first person I knew within the first five minutes of the show. I was even more excited when I discovered that every episode ends with the celebrity cops partying at the Sunshine Cafe – one of my favorite hangouts in high school. So I think that makes me one degree away from all five of those cops. Erik Estrada probably sat in a chair that I sat in at one time.
I find as I grow older, it takes smaller and smaller things to excite me.
