I am really enjoying the Office. I had never seen it before January, but as a way to keep my husband amused during his recovery I rented the first season. Then I discovered that Netflix streams it, so I have been slowly working my way through the past episodes as I walk on the treadmill.
It’s painful at times. I see Michael Scott blunder, and I know it’s coming, but I feel obligated to watch, just because it is so incredibly painful to observe. And it’s almost as if this could happen in real life. I feel embarrassed for the characters.
Granted, I know of no one who consistently puts his foot in his mouth as much as Michael Scott, but honestly, I’ve seen people have Scott-esque moments…social gaffes and meltdowns that I cannot believe are happening.
So I’m working my way through the seasons, laughing and grimacing, and at times walking away because of the acute discomfort.
