Here’s the problem: I do not have cable or any television reception and I am extremely bummed that I am missing The Simpson’s marathon.
Here’s why that is ridiculous: I own the first 9 seasons…sooo….I could be doing the marathon independently for quite a while before experiencing any angst over missed episodes.
Weird truth: I really want to be in my jammies experiencing this thing like it is some big cultural event, like people watching the moon landing. I want to be a part of it.
What should have happened: There should be some local bar or ice creamery where I can sit and chill with a bunch of other nerdy fans and talk about how great it is that Bart is not really stuck in a well.
Drawbacks: I don’t want them to see me in my jammies and all that beer and ice cream will not work for me after a few episodes and then I will be sad because I will miss the episodes that I actually have never seen.
Solution: Everything is fine.
Fun Fact: I am still bummed that I am missing the marathon. Whatever.
