The Office-Americana

A conversation that took place with my friend Howell earlier today:

Me: Although I love the American version of The Office, I simply don't get the Brittish version. I just mean, sometimes I think I am to smart for the American version and maybe to dumb for the British one. It's a little painful.

Howell: Is it the dry wit that gets you?

Me: Nooo, I don't think so. I enjoy the painfully ackward situation as much as anyone. Darn it, much like the perfect pair of jeans the perfect t.v. show elludes me.

Howell, that was beautiful. And horrific. The INSTANT that I read it the song went running through my head. I hate you now.

Howell said...

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week.

Honestly, it is the only show I like on TV. I liked the British version, but the American one is more hysterical.

Howell, you are hysterical.
