Ah, Thursdays are my “mental health day”. The only day I can go straight home from work and not go back out until class this evening. I usually spend it with a nice nap and doing all the reading that I haven’t done for my class.
Last night we watched the season premiere of Smallville. We always watch this partly to enjoy the show and partly to make fun of the show, and also to do things like groan out loud when, for instance, Chloe’s tombstone showed her birthdate to be 1987. 1987 and it makes us feel like two little pedophiles for watching the show, especially when one of Clark or Lana’s courtesy “here’s more skin than you’ve seen in a while” scenes come up.
The show ends with Clark and Lois Lane (I’m not sure how I feel about her, should she prop her boobs up some more?) grieving at Chloe’s grave. Then Lois turns and starts to walk away. Clark secretly uses his x ray vision and realizes that Chloe’s coffin is empty. He turns and calls out to Lois “Chloe is still alive!” and the dramatic scene ends.
Steve and I then debated how that conversation could possibly realistically continue. For example-
Clark: Chloe is still alive!
Lois: What? How do you know that?
Clark: Uh.. I just do.
Lois: Why didn’t you say something before? We were just talking about how to find Chloe’s killer. Like, two seconds ago.
Clark: Uh.. well I was just thinking about it some more and I think she’s alive now. Hey, it’s a good thing you’re going to come and live with me now, it will give us lots of opportunities to barge in on each other partially dressed. My parents don’t mind that I didn’t consult with them about this at all.
Lois: Ooh, ok. I’ll act very haughty towards you because you are a farm boy but I will secretly be attracted to you, which will be evident every time I see you without your shirt on.
Two years ago yesterday Steve and I got married in the Northeast Kingdom. Saying that it was the best day of my life sounds sappy and cliche, but it was. Happy Anniversary to my favorite Smallville-watchng partner.
