Thanks to modern technology and the Godsend that is Netflix on the Wii, Caleb and I have discovered “The Office”. And I. love. it.
How did I ever miss this show? Why have I not been watching it since it came out? I’ll tell you why–it’s because as parents, the only thing Caleb and I ever really watch on real-time TV is the occasional severe weather update.
And that’s about it. Well, sometimes there’s Chugginton or Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
But back to The Office. I had always heard it was funny, so I decided to try it. Season 1, episode 1. Start. I was hooked the second Dwight pulled out a stapler encased in jello.
Caleb took a little longer to get addicted; he saw the light halfway into season 2.
We covered 4 episodes a night just to make it through season 3. I was seriously going to lose it if Jim and Pam didn’t get together at some point–and I think Caleb felt the same way. But they did, and now Caleb and I are in the early stages of Season 4. Jim and Pam are dating. We’ve seen Dwight’s beet farm. And Michael Scott is the World’s Greatest Boss.
Life is good.
