catheter commercial

JJ and i watched a House marathon the other night, and it was one of those where the SAME commercial kept coming on EVERY commercial break. and the commercial made JJ sick with dread.

twas a commercial for catheters. i guess just the thought of a catheter is enough to make any man cringe with hatred. and of course all the commercials are louder than the actual program, so much to my delight i got to enjoy JJ shut his eyes, writhing in uncomfortability whilst covering his ears and screaming "LA LA LA LAAAA!" and he would say "IS IT OVER YET?!?!" and i would say "YES!" right as the fake doctor comes on screen and says, "never use a dirty catheter again!" and he would yell at me. but then it would all happen again during the next commercial break. it was like COME ON JJ DO YOU EVEN KNOW ME?! of COURSE i'm going to take any opportunity i can get to annoy the shit out of you.

of course i apologized later for being a bit of an ass, and just before we fell asleep, i couldn't help myself really, i said quietly, "aren't you glad you don't have to wear a catheter everyday?"

he stared at me. then sighed very heavily under his breath, called me "impossible," and went to sleep. i would have rather seen him leap out of bed in rage and give me a lecture on how insensitive and rude i am, but hey, we can't win every time.

  1. Great post. I love house! I hate when they play the same commercials over and over again especially if they are about something like that. I have never had a catheter and I am sure its painful but I don't want to see commercials for them.
