A Slight Obsession

In case you didn't know, I'm slightly obsessed with The Office. Any of you watch it???

Seriously, you know things are getting bad when:
  1. You really consider the main characters "your friends".
  2. Every time you see a navy blue Sebring, you totally expect to see Michael Scott driving. Possibly even with Dwight in the car.
  3. You can quote every episode from Seasons 1-3, and can find a quote for every occasion.
  4. You can watch it every single night for months on end. I have been doing this for a year. I have seasons 1-3 on DVD and there is always one in the DVD player. I watch an episode every night before bed so I can end the day on a good note.
  5. Your very young children know all the characters, and when asked what movie they want to watch, often reply...yep, you guessed it..."The Office"!
  6. You feel the need to constantly retort "That's what she said" whenever possible. This can become quite an issue of professionalism, especially in my case. Being a massage therapist really puts a unique spin on "that's what she said". For instance, quite often I hear "Do I feel really tight?" Um, yeah..."that's what she said!" And I have to tell myself "NO, NO, NO, NO!!! Don't say it!" Or how about this one..."You can go deeper." OMG. Lord, help me. Or even, "I can't BELIEVE how good that feels!" Do you see why this is a problem????
So yeah, I have a slight obsession... a sickness, I tell you.

But if it's wrong, I don't want to be right.

Funny! I love The Office. We've been watching episodes on Netflix. It's replacing Frasier, which I used to watch every night before bed to get a good laugh :)

My daughter and I can manage to work a "that's what she said" into practically *any* sentence! My husband gets tired of it and tells us to knock it off. Now she and I don't even have to say the words, we just sort of mumble with the right cadence and the message comes across clear as a bell ; )

I think the cure is for us to just shun him. And unshun when we need him. That's what she said . . .
