A most unexpected thing happened while watching our recorded version of the Survivor finale on Sunday.
Something that had my daughter in stitches as I screamed in horror.
Yeah, go ahead; tease me now about reality shows...
I fully admit to being a Survivor fan since the first season. I've even met two Survivor All-Stars; Ethan Zohn (winner of Survivor Africa) and Jenna Morasca (winner of Survivor Amazon). Following that first meeting, Ethan and I traded a few emails back and forth about my donation to his African Grassroots Soccer AIDS charity (which his million dollar prize money founded).
Finished with the wisecracks yet?
Good. Now back to Sunday.
Because hubby made my Mother's Day dinner, we Tivo'd the show and watched it together on delay a bit later in the evening.
With constant interruptions.
After two-plus hours, just as Jeff Probst was to read the final, possibily tie vote for the million dollar winner, the recording stopped.
Just like that.
Film editors for the Sopranos couldn't have timed it better.
As he unfolded the last parchment, the Tivo beeped and asked if we wanted to delete the show.
Hubby just sat there and blinked.
Daughter laughed hysterically at my pain.
I couldn't believe it! I had to find out if Amanda (my choice) or Parvati (hubby's choice) had won... what the hell?
I went back to our program list and desperately searched - and sure enough Tivo had recorded the final hour of the show (including the Reunion special) in a separate file.
Rats. Parvati won.
And daughter laughed hysterically at me once more.
