Bogus Journey

I dropped in Best Buy to purchase TV Funhouse on Friday. A young college couple were there, looking at bargain DVDs.

GIRL: Have you ever seen "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure"?

MY BRAIN: What a stupid question. Everyone has seen that magnificent achievement.

BOY: No.

MY BRAIN: Oops! I'm 29 years old. I'm carrying the digital copy of a TV show that no one has ever heard of, because I was the only person watching it during its original Fall 2000 airing.

GIRL: Look! (Points to DVD cover) That's Keanu Reeves!

BOY: Wow. He's really young.

MY HEART: Oops! I think I just died.
