can't decide if I should lie, tell the truth, or try to hide it.

she watched laguna beach
and 30 rock
that 70's show (she thought ashton kutcher was funny)
and, aside from reruns of cheers on netflix,
mostly shows about empty people

I had the shield
and john from cincinnati
deadwood and six feet under
shows about mor(t)ality

but that one night at costco
after she'd made it clear how ineffectual a person I was
we passed the dvd sets of
seasons of mad men
and she picked one up and said

"we should have a show."

I didn't know what she really meant
until it was far too late
and we had already reached syndication.
