Shush! Big Mama's Watching Her Stories

My wife watches two television programs religiously: Heroes and Lost. She’s a big fan of the mystery, the character development and the one-word titles. Tonight Heroes is on and I heard this addressed to The Quartet at 7:59 p.m., “This is my show and anybody who gets on my nerves will be banished from the living room!” I’m not sure how long the banishment lasts, and it’s a somewhat ambiguous threat anyway, so I opted to just stay safely out of there. I would suggest the kids do the same, but I’m not going back in there until nine o’clock.
