Did anyone watch the "Dallas" reunion special on CBS tonight? My husband and I did and, boy, did it bring back a ton of memories. My mom and I almost NEVER missed an episode. Of course, I don't remember watching it until the last few years of the show but they were memorable ones.
I had to tease my mom tonight and say, "I can't believe you let me watch that!" because I was only about 12 or 13 when I really started paying attention to it. She said, "Well, you still turned out okay." Actually, I was so shy when in high school you could barely get me to leave the house, so it's not like that show had a negative impact on me or anything.
I had the biggest crush on Patrick Duffy, a.k.a. Bobby Ewing, and I had to laugh tonight because my husband looked up his age on the Internet and found out that he is only 2 months older than my dad!
When I discovered this I told my husband that that show must have had a lot to do with me starting to like older guys, because my husband is almost 15 years older than me. My parents could care less though. They love him! All that matters to either of them is that he treats me right. I've never really liked guys my own age. I always felt older than I really am so I never related to guys in school. It wasn't until I was working right after college that I met my husband either, so I was completely legal when we started dating!
Anyway, I got way off on a tangent. It was a pretty neat show tonight if "Dallas" was your thing in the '80s.
