Why I'm a Great Friend Reason #8213

Heather called me AT 9:00 pm.

9:00 pm. Translation: when Grey's Anatomy starts.

It was Heather's birthday on Sunday and, while I left her a message wishing her rainbows and cupcakes and endless happiness during her 25th year, I haven't talked to her.

And so, at 9:00 pm, I sucked it up and I was a friend and I answered her call. While All. Of. This. Excitement. unraveled on Grey's.

It was KILLING me.

But I listened to her bitch about her job and her mom, babble on about her new boyfriend and update me on the lives of her sister and a high school friend for 12 agonizing minutes.

I didn't even scream DON'T YOU KNOW THAT IS IS 9:00 PM ON A THURSDAY! DON'T YOU KNOW THAT TONIGHT IS THE FIRST OF THE THREE DISASTER/TRIAGE/GORY/CRAZY LIKE WOAH EPISODES? MY GOD, HEATHER, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?

I didn't do it. I saw her number and I picked up the phone.

A friend, even a friend with whom I have a spotty history, always takes prescience over a television show. Even if it's a badass episode and she's rambling on about the school district she teaches in.

It's the right thing. Occasionally, I surprise myself and do the right thing. Sometimes, I have morals.

All the time, however, I want to hump Dr. Karev. Mmmmmmm.

TiVo is your true friend.

Karev?! Really? To each their own I guess.

I think the first episode of the three parter could be skipped and you'd still get by. It wasn't that great, imo. But my friends and I made a great Grey's Anatomy drinking game while watching. We are going to test it out next week. I can't wait!

Amen to TiVo (or your standard, Comcast DVR). But, even I, whom doesn't even watch Grey's, know better than to call my sister at 9pm on a Thursday for that very reason.

Maybe subconsciously you knew you could watch the stuff you missed online or tonight at 8?
