Sense Of Loss For People We Don't Know

Okay, that title sounds way better than the post will be, but this is something Lorie and I were talking about the other day. TV.

Whether we like it or not, we form one-sided relationships with people on TV in the shows we watch. And it was funny because we were realizing how invested we've become now that some of those people are leaving. In the last week we've lost Jack Bauer (24), the people on Lost, the Canadiens are out of the playoffs and last night we said good-bye to Simon Cowell (I don't watch a lot of American Idol, but Lorie likes it and the only way she can get me to stay is emphasizing him, we get along).

It's just funny how these things/people we never really knew can be such a big part of our lives. Now I'm going to have to do other things like go outside... or read books...
