Very Serious Television Commentary
Have you seen the commercials for that 'HawthoRNe' show on TNT? I'm talking about the one with Jada Pinkett Smith, where she stands pensively beside a bedside one moment and then gets arrested the next. And as they drag her down the hallway, she keeps screaming, "I'm a nurse! I'm a NURSE!!!"
Which is all very realistic. Trust me. My husband is a doctor; I know these things.
Anyway, every time the commercial comes on, Slayer says that he doesn't read it as the name 'Hawthorne,' but as...
Wait for it.
'Hot Ho RN.'
Personally, I think this is a little wishful thinking on his part. We have a standing deal that when we both get old, he'll be allowed to have a cute young nurse, and I'll be allowed to have a cute young poolboy. Apparently, his nurse will be named Hot Ho RN.
My poolboy is feeling neglected. I didn't realize I was supposed to give him a cutesy nickname. Why don't people tell me these things? And does the nickname need to follow the 'Hot Ho RN' formula? Because if it does, my poolboy will be named 'Hot Stud PB,' which sounds like a very inappropriate circus act involving cowboys and peanut butter. And what kind of applicants do you think I'm going to get if I advertise on Craigslist for a Hot Stud PB?
Scary. Scary, scary, scary.
