There are times when having a TV marathon has to substitute for “date night” and this was one of those times. After feeling quite a bit under the weather, all I wanted to do was sit around watching television to make me laugh and escape my world. Michael was a sweetie and tolerated what constitutes a rom-drama-dy, a genre he likes to roll his eyes at and talk through while driving me absolutely mad!
It was the perfect time to try to find a new show! I was bummed when I found out that The Starter Wife, starring Debra Messing, didn’t last more than a couple seasons- but I still really enjoyed it! It was lighthearted and funny– and left me trying to complete the series in my dreams.
In true gentlemanly fashion, Michael fetched my water, catered to his under-the-weather-wife, and quietly watched (and dare I suggest, was entertained?) by my choice in entertainment. All in all- if you are looking for a quick romantic-comedy fix, this is a pretty cute show.
I did agree to start to watch Lincoln— also, can’t wait to finish. But it’s the type of movie that you really need to listen to carefully– I was too under the weather for it, but Daniel Day Lewis looks fantastic! Can’t wait to finish this one!
