Jackpot

February 13th, 2010

It’s been a week of downs and ups which climaxed in Thursday’s workplace massacre. Nine of my coworkers received termination notices. While I’m grateful to still find myself drawing a paycheck, it’s hard to feel too happy about it.

Meanwhile, Vic’s annual heart checkup on Friday turned out okay. I didn’t expect otherwise, but it’s still nice to get confirmation.

All of this is my way of saying that I valued a good laugh this week, and one of the best came from this week’s Modern Family, the Thiel household’s new favorite comedy. While I love the entire cast–especially the oddly mature kid Manny–I have to say that I find myself identifying with Phil, the childlike, overeager husband.

Here’s a good bit from Wednesday’s episode, in which Phil and his wife Claire try to spice up their life with a bit of role-play. “Pretty kitty has nails.”
