I loved that show. It was coming to an end just as Jay and I met, and he watched all the last episodes with me in our teeny little apartment.
Anyway, there was a scene one time in Big Love in which all the wives were having a family meeting. They were upset about something, and the head wife said “well Bill (the patriarch), in his wisdom, has decided that this is what’s best for our family.”
My sister and I were watching that particular episode together and just DIED. I don’t know why. We really enjoyed the sentence structure, maybe? Or the absurdity of it?
Since then we talk about ridiculous people who make ridiculous choices in that exact same way. In their wisdom, they have decided to be ridiculous.
In my wisdom, I have decided that we should choose to be happy on Mondays, instead of saying things we always say like MONDAYS SUCK and WHERE IS THE WEEKEND.
Nope, we’re lovin’ Monday. I have also, in my wisdom, decided that salads can be eaten any time, and Mondays should be celebrated, preferably with chips. Chips dipped in easy peasy vegan homemade salsa verde!
Yes. In my wisdom.
