John Locke stole my dad
Is anyone else out there a Lost fan? My family got me hooked on it when Max was an infant- at family events, they would bring up this show that they were watching, and words like deserted island, polar bears, smoke monster, and secret hatch peaked my curiosity. So Paul and I started out renting the DVDs and watching them after Max went to sleep... and when we got caught up, we just kept watching.
Now, six seasons later, this show that has left me each week wondering what I just saw (and why I'm still watching) has finally come to an end. Last night was the finale so we went to my parents house to watch it with the people who got us into this mess in the first place. We walked in the door to find my dad dressed as none other than John Locke and a spread of DHARMA Initiative issue snacks on the table! Was I surprised? Not a bit. And if you know my dad, you probably aren't surprised either.
(On a side note, DHARMA Initiative Merlot is way better than I imagined it would be.)
