Brian and I were watching a cheesy show recently. We have very few channels, so sometimes we're stuck with cheesy. Anyway, this character starts feeding the audience information while she's on the phone. Stuff like...
"I've missed you so much since you moved away two years ago... Well of course you couldn't help it if your dad's job relocated..."
And so on, until Brian said, "Nice backstory."
I just stared at him. He does listen after all.
