Last night, I binge-watched Santa Clarita Diet and I loved it. And I am really hoping for a season two. What is not to love?
Drew Barrymore- check
Drew Barrymore munching on dead people- check
But then it got me thinking, sure I love zombies, who doesn't? There was something more. Something about Sheila and Joel's characters, how they curse all the damn time, and how they act. How the music is stuff I heard when I was younger. And then it dawned on me- I related to the characters.
And then I realized, damn I middle-aged. When the fuck did that happen? Weird thing is even though Joel and Sheila are middle-aged, they didn't act middle aged (aside from the killing and hiding dead people). You know like middle-aged like how our parents were long time ago. It's like there was whole secret world that gets opened up when your middle-aged. Seriously, you want to drink beer and watch Spongebob, no one gives a shit. All while your kid is just trying to hide. It's like you spend your twenties raising small children and then boom by the time you are in your mid-thirties your kids are older and things are different.
Sure, there are a lot of people who hate getting older. This July I will turn 37 and I am looking forward to it. I will be only 42 when my kid is 18. That is still middle aged with plenty more to go.
How do you feel about getting older?
Till next time...
