*whistles nonchalantly* Why, ummmmm....yes, that is a bit odd...Me? Watch shows like that? Well...maybe once in a while...if I'm flipping channels.... *whistles nonchalantly, stares off into space*

I blame the tv channel TLC. Last night was birth-defect night - an hour on non-separatable twins, then an hour on primordial dwarfism. (Then it repeated.)A few days ago it was crazy medical night, with all the accompanying drama and pathos. Hours of this stuff.
I guess it makes better tv watching that C-SPAN?
How did you injure a bottle of aftershave?

The spray button cracked in two and became completely useless.

Well yes, it DOES make total sense to me. I'm like your wife in that way, and it doesn't make much sense to my husband, either.
Between Discovery Health (conjoined twins! large tumors!) and A&E (The First 48, City Confidential, American Justice), I'm in heaven.

Well, in TFBYM's defense, I am 98% sure they put subliminal messages in those programs saying, "watch this or we'll do this to your kid."
It's a double-x chromosome thing. You wouldn't understand.

I can't do too much recreationally morbid (which is a great label by the way). I'm too squeamish. I have to block my ears and cover my eyes if anyone so much as vomits on tv.

First, I hope you bottle of aftershave is doing better.
I love the medical freak shows, too. I sit in bed watching doctors cauterizing 250 pound tumors off tiny women and I think stuff like, "I wonder how that smells".

You are all seriously strange.
Me, I listen to Harry Potter on CD. And no, I'm not rooting for Voldemort. The very idea! Weirdos.

i wish i had read this last night so i wouldn't have missed TLC defect night. I LOVE stuff like that; you should see the medical section of my library (my personal library, at my house). i have a feeling your wife and i would get on like a house afire. which we could later read about and make suitable sympathetic noises.

What's worse is when she tries to rope me in. "Honey, c'mere and see this! There's this kid and he was born inside out...the doctors are trying to staple his liver to his forehead."
Some of these programs are more like Salvador Dalí having an acid trip than anything else.

I like those programs too. My husband will leave the room with his hand over his mouth.

Yeah; yer point?!
And good for your wife for knowing what stuff in her pelvic floor feels like! So many women run around with growths the size of grapefruits in their innards, insisting that they're just 'a little tired'

It must be the female of the species thing... I LOVE seeing all those things. Also the 'someone stole old Peggy's liver' stories too.
You can sometimes sustitute those spray buttons, with another similar.

It was the utter unavailability of "another similar" that was killing me.
