Listen, whether you want to admit it or not, after you’re married a while, maybe have a couple kids and the ‘honeymoon phase’ of indescribable feelings and impromptu passion that you once knew wanes and withers a bit on the old vine of life, you begin to search for new and interesting things about your partner to keep you interested.
My wife and I have been married over nine years now, and we zipped through that early stage of bliss at 189 mph and so it was a all a big sweaty, beautiful blur.
I mean, after the first six weeks wore off…ummmm.
Look, we still love each other and all, but…but…
Oh hell, let me just say it!
We have replaced lust and romance and all of that jazz with marathon sessions of incredible 21st century cable TV drama series on untouchable Blu-Ray!!
Call us ‘couch potatoes’. Call us fuddy-duddys. Call us boring and uninspired and uncultured celibate bumps on a log, because WE. DON’T. CARE. YO.
The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Dexter, The Walking Dead, the list goes on and on of all the powerful shows we have watched together, side-by-side, the two of us separated only by our chip bowl and nine feet of sofa leather.
Has it been the greatest part of our lives? Not really. No. But it has been really great.
And so when we first started watching Breaking Bad a few weeks ago, after everyone else on Earth was just about done with it, we kind of knew we were crashing the party pretty late. But, my oh my, how we have fallen in love with yet another monument to storytelling greatness.
Anyway. With October 31st right around the corner, I went snooping around the Google trying to see if anyone had come up with any really cool, clever Breaking Bad Halloween costumes.
