But there are no reruns of Survivor.
Mom: I used to watch that show.
Me: Yes, we watched the first season last year. The second season starts tonight.
Mom: No. I used to watch it but stopped watching. I don't know why I stopped watching it...
Me: Because is hasn't been on tv.
Mom: I don't know. I haven't seen it in a while.
Me: NO ONE HAS SEEN IT. The show first started about a year ago. And just like most shows, it's on tv for a while, then reruns, then a new group of shows. JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER SHOW YOU WATCH.
Mom: I don't know.
40 minutes later
Mom: Where are all the husbands? Aren't they on the show anymore?
Mom: Haven't you seen this show before? They all have husbands in the military.
Me: HUH? What? Yes I've seen it! (I mean, really!)
