24

Jason and I are 17 years behind the rest of the world. We just started watching the series 24. So much of this show reminds me of parenting.

The 24 version:
Jack Bower puts a gun to a man’s head and says, “Tell me where my wife and daughter are or I’m going to shoot you.”

The Levine Family version:
I corner Grady in his bedroom and say, “Tell me where my cell phone is or I’m going to take away all of your dinosaurs.”

The 24 version:
Kim Bower hides a weapon she can use to escape her kidnappers when they’re not watching.

The Levine Family version:
Jason hides an extra serving of Dunkin Donuts hash browns he can eat when the kids are not watching.

The 24 version:
Terrorists talk through a microphone in Jack Bower’s ear and make him do terrible things he doesn’t want to do just so they’ll leave him alone.

The Levine Family version:
Grady and Annie Bea whine as loud as possible until I play terrible sing-a-long songs in the car just so they’ll leave me alone.

It’s like watching a documentary on my life.
