I Hate Spunk.

I bought myself an iPod Touch a couple of weeks ago.  This was a big splurge, but I figured I could use it to download and watch TV shows while on the treadmill at the gym.  Since I am still mildly famous among my old high school friends for the lengths to which I would go to avoid gym class, anything that gets me off the couch is a good thing.  I am not sporty.

So when my new toy came, I went on iTunes to see what they had.  You know what they had?  The Mary Tyler Moore Show.  For you youngsters, that’s the greatest TV show ever in the history of TV.  Seriously.

So, at the gym last Friday, I started with the very first episode.  It’s the one with the scene where Mary interviews with Mr. Grant for the job at WJM-TV.  On the one hand, it’s classic comedy, and I laughed out loud (and accidentally hit the stop button on the treadmill, because I am a dork).  On the other hand, while I was only a zygote when this aired in the fall of 1970, I’m pretty sure there were actually interviews that pretty much went like this in those days.

So, when you’re on your next interview…be glad if the guy doesn’t offer you a drink and ask you why you’re not married.  You’ve come a long way, baby.
