When I got home from work tonight, I noticed that Iwanski was watching a t.v. show that appeared to have train after train after train running down a track.
I went in the bedroom to change out of my work clothes, assuming that he was watching some kind of Western or something.
But then I began to hear things like…
“At Wilmington, Massachusetts, a commuter train approaches with four wooden coaches, occupying the New Hampshire Route main line.”
“What are you watching?” I asked.
“Trains,” he said matter-of-factly. “That’s right, I Tivo’d a show that’s just footage of trains from the 1940’s.”
I stared at him and started laughing.
“Yeah,” he replied. “Really.”
I stood there, watching the t.v. for a few minutes in disbelief.
Sure enough, it was just train after train after train, rolling down the track, interspersed by the most boring commentary I think I have ever heard.
So my husband likes to watch footage of trains from the 1940’s. Do you know ANYONE else who likes to do this?
I cannot think of anything I’d rather watch LESS than footage of trains from the 1940’s.
I’m telling you, I’ve been married to this man for almost 14 years now—and I can honestly say that he just gets weirder and weirder every year.
