Me and the parental figure (aka The Mom) have this thing. She’ll watch a TV show–one I’m not really interested in or think looks cool–and get all addicted, and somehow, after a few months or a year (however long), I’ll end up getting addicted, too. Like I did for Smallville and Stargate SG-1.
So, it’s been my mission in life to return the favor. And I have. I got her addicted to Dark Angel, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Roswell, and, course, Supernatural. Last night, she yelled at me because she’s confused (she’s missed a lot of this season) and then proceeded to pout when I said no to an all-night marathon because I needed to write. (I’m such a good little writer!)
I just think it’s funny how we go back and forth about this. Not just with TV, either, but movies and books–and even some music. (She still curses me for getting her addicted to “Damn” by Matchbox Twenty. 😀
What about y’all? Any shared addictions?
