In the Name of Science!

I'm conducting an experiment of sorts on my son. It may not be entirely ethical, I realize, but I'm doing it in the name of science, dammit.

Since I've been off, I've been working my way through the first four seasons of The Office on Roku. I do my best to contain it mostly to times when the Kid is sleeping, because I really do want to focus on him as much as possible.

But when, say, I'm feeding him or he's dozing in the living room, I'll watch a couple of episodes.

In addition to enjoying the development of the secondary characters, there's something else going on every time I hit play. I'm hoping that the show's theme will embed itself in the Kid's psyche. I'm hoping that, years from now, when the show's been off the air forever, he'll randomly hear the theme song someplace and think, "I know that song. How do I know that song? That's so weird..."

Science is not pretty, my friends.

it could be worse.
Yeah, I've got that going on from "The Monkees."

It ain't pretty, but he'll survive.
