A few months ago, The Human Male and I started watching the show Veronica Mars, which is about a teenage detective with a bad attitude—picture Nancy Drew with a taser. It first came on in 2004 and lasted three seasons. Such a shame, it’s an absolutely fantastic show and ended with sooooo many loose ends! But I guess that’s the best way to end a show—solid with a ton of potential, rather than to wear out its welcome.
On the show, Veronica has a dog named Back-Up, a burly brown pit bull. He’s super adorable, and we always got excited when he was in an episode.
A couple months back, I put on an episode and it featured Back-Up pretty substantially at the beginning. A few minutes in, I noticed that Alice was pulling her bed and toys into a pile in front of the TV. She then flopped down in the pile and stared at the screen. She was actually watching the show!
I had a good laugh at the time, and The Human Male and I still sometimes tease Alice about her celebrity boyfriend—but we figured it was a once-off thing. Then we popped on Veronica Mars again about a week ago, and sure enough, she jumped on the couch and started watching again!
