I don't think it's a particularly girly thing
Then again, both Maureen and Carter are teasing me about it, so what the hell do I know?

I am, of course, talking about something as small and simple and stupid as watching TV. The group of us are sitting in the living room, watching the Yankees/Twins game, trying to console Carter (he lived in Atlanta long enough to become a legitimate Braves fan), and he's driving me nuts. He can't just leave it on the game, but has to jump between channels even between pitches. Just pick a channel and stay there, for crying out loud.

Maureen laughs, says that I must really have taken the whole girl thing to heart, but I say I don't see how this is a male/female thing. I mean, I always tended toward choosing a show and sticking with it. That's why I got the Replay unit in my previous life - I like to choose what shows I watch, set them aside, and then watch 'em. I always joked that I don't "watch television", but specific things. I mean, people don't just "read books", right?

I start to say, so, if I'm really a whole girl now because of how I watch TV, what does that say about Carter? But Carter shoots me a nasty look somewhere around "TV", so I let it go. I need to get dressed for tonight anyway; we're going to some Italian place that Doug had to reserve weeks in advance.
