Context behind the conversation that happened last night…
So, MC is a GOT person (Game of Thrones, for those few not aware). She has seen all of the episodes, is caught up on the story lines and will read most of the “speculation” posts that get circulated on Facebook during the weeks between episodes and months between seasons. See, she binged most of the first few seasons when she was on bed-rest with the twins.
Me? Not so much. Don’t get me wrong, it’s VERY much in my wheelhouse, I just have not had the opportunity to get caught up, especially with 3 kids. I have seen several, or at least pieces of, episodes – more from this season than any of the previous 5, which leads to last night.
The Eldest is with grandparents this week. The twins went down at a semi-reasonable time and without too much trouble, but I was out of the room first, about 20 minutes before MC. When she finally comes downstairs, an episode of GOT played on the Roku.
MC: Which one are you watching?
Me: The second one.
MC: Of the season? [currently Season 6, for anyone reading this in the future]
Me: Second. Period.
MC: Seriously? [THIS reaction is what made the exchange.]
Yes, before last night I had only truly, with intent, watched the first episode – S1,E1.
