Jeopardy and Barney

After a few months, I’m finally getting back to talking about Barney. It was bound to happen eventually! After all, I do watch it for 24 hours a week for work.

Tonight, I was watching Jeopardy. I love watching that show. One of the questions was about a nursery rhyme that I don’t remember from when I was little, though my mother says she said it many times.

No, I don’t remember it from then. I remember the nursery rhyme from Barney’s House.

Oh, yeah. I’m watching a lot of Barney lately.

The clue on Jeopardy was, “According to a famous nursery rhyme, this person runs ‘upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown.'” I was screaming at the TV, “IT’S WEE WILLY WINKY!”

The contestants didn’t know it. I was beyond frustrated that they couldn’t answer it.

I guess that comes from watching it constantly, though. I practically have the show memorized. Answers that seem so simple to me might not be so simple to anybody else.

The same could go for anything, really. I think my job is incredibly easy. Everyone I talk to thinks my job is incredibly hard. Even after I explain to them what I really do all day, they think my job is difficult. It’s not, really. Then again, I’m learning patience, and I’m more patient than I used to be.

I do love my job, and yes, I actually kind of enjoy watching Barney from time to time. The girl I take care of gets a big laugh out of whenever Barney is paused. We always tell her, “Barney got stuck!” It’s cute. Really cute. I don’t pause it just for no reason, but her parents pause it at the appropriate times (such as when they brush her teeth or at a certain time during physical therapy).

I don’t know how long I’ll be working there, but I’m going to enjoy the time I have there. I’m going to watch Barney while I’m there.I will always say that, had I been on Jeopardy, I could have won $400. Who knows? Maybe I’ll win more imaginary money.
