They Are Coming To Get You, Barbara, er, Mrs. Sarcastro


In the wake of the arrival of the newest Sarcastro, we have had little time to decompress.  Various social and child activity demands have left us with very little downtime.  Last Saturday night was the first night we had in a while that didn’t revolve around watching whatever crap the kids have decided they must fill their brains with.

As is our luck, there wasn’t a damn thing worth watching.  So I coerced the Mrs. into a little zombie action.  Settle down, perverts.  I’m talking zombie movies.  She claims to have never seen one.  Not one.  So, I pulled up the  Dawn of the Dead remake on our Comcast Digital Cable’s On Demand Service. 

The cruel side of me wanted to spring this one on her when she was way pregnant.  There’s this one scene where  Dr. Pratt’s girlfriend is way pregnant and infected by a zombie bite.  I don’t want to ruin it, but it is on the disturbing side.  Chivalry prevailed and I waited until our son was a week and a half old to show her the film.  I like to be sensitive to a woman’s fragile post-partum emotional state. 

The Mrs. was not amused by the scene.  Nor was she particularly pleased with me for subjecting her to the zombie horde.  Especially a few days later when she was up in the middle of the night fixing a bottle for the unrelenting hunger of the aforementioned baby.  She was convinced that there were three zombies in the stairway to the basement.  They just stood there and stared at her while she mixed the formula up.  She was petrified.  Somehow, this has become my fault.

So, baby, I’m sorry.  Let me make it up to you.  Let’s have a date night soon and go see a movie:

    Date night?? Movie?? Just one of the many reasons I love you. You are always thinking of me, even in your own sick and twisted way.

    Nice save, there, Casinova.Might I recomend "Mrs Henderson Presents".It’s a total chickflick, but it’s set in 1930’s and 40’s London, and there are naked girls in it. And it’s based on a true story.Something for everyone.

    If that was her only zombie movie experience, she’d probably think it was really hot if you grabbed her and demanded, "Gimmie some sugar, baby!"

    I’m impressed with your non-chalant use of your Comcast Digital Cable’s On Demand Service, as though it were free or something.

  5. Sarcastro Says:

    Knuck,Nationwide, over 70% of On Demand programming is free, and in the Nashville market, over 90% is free content. Or so I’ve heard.Scott, While I’m reading your comment, I’m hearing you put the arm on Nashville listeners to cough up the dough for WPLN. I’m sure the French have a word for that.I need more wine if I’m going to get the Mrs. to sit through Army of Darkness. Chicks will do anything if you feed them enough booze.

  6. Mother Sarcastro Says:

    You need to take her to a chick flick. Trust me on this. I know you’re kidding, they know you’re kidding and Mrs S knows you’re kidding. You need a new "shtick" xx

  7. Sarcastro Says:

    If I wanted your opinion I’d drive to GA this weekend.Oh, goddammit.

  8. Scott Smith Says:

    And the fact that I have to get on the air and do that is the one and only reason I don’t have an obnoxious, opinionated, smartass blog of my own. The powers that be would frown on my venting vitriol on to the web when I have to take to the air periodically and persuade the good people of Middle Tennessee to come up with some moolah for public radio. And what the hell are you doing listening during the fund drive anyway? Christ, even I can’t stand it this week. (Oops! That would be just one example of the sort of thing they wouldn’t want me telling you.) And did you hear us trying to raise money around Terry Gross interviewing Richard Dawkins? "There is no God! Call now with a pledge!" Why she picked this topic for a fundraising show I’ll never know. Still, it doesn’t quite match a few years ago when we had to fundraise around a masturbating quadriplegic transsexual. Who but public radio, indeed.

  9. Sarcastro Says:

    Normally, I tune out this week. But, I need to hear the rush hour traffic report to plan my escape route from Mainstream Drive.If it makes you feel better, I’ll chip in during the fall pledge drive. We’re not done paying off the new baby yet. At least that’s the story I’m going with.If I had heard the Dawkins interview, I might have been persuaded to part with the cash. I may check it out online.
