Last night, just before drifting off to sleep, our dark bedroom
Katie: What are we doing tomorrow night again?
EarD: (Pause for dramatic, incredulous effect) Ummm, watching The Office.
Katie: (with a renewed excitement) Oh, yeah. That is going to be awesome.
Pause for a few moments to let the realization sink in
EarD: What are you most excited about?
Katie: Well, I really miss Kevin and Angela. They are my friends and I haven't seen them in a really long time. (pause) And, I'm really excited to see how Pam and Jim's date goes.
Yes, we really to think The Office characters are real people. We know this because they are our friends.
