Thursday I had my usual night at the temple and arrived home around 10:30. As I walked into the house I could instantly tell that something was different. With Sarah being the only child at home our place is normally quiet but this night things were abnormally quiet. Lisa will usually call out something like, "hi honey" and if Sarah is awake she will often come running to me and jump into my arms but this night I was sure Sarah was in bed and Lisa was asleep on the couch. The lights were all out and the house was dark except for the light from the TV and it was very quiet. I walked into the back room where the TV was and both Lisa and Sarah were glued to the TV. I don't mean they were just watching but they were leaning forward and their faces were extremely intense. I'm not sure but I think they may have even had tears in their eyes. I stood there for a minute or two and neither of them would even glance in my direction. I finally just laughed and said, "that must be one intense episode of Vampire Diaries". I've never watched even a single episode so I don't even know who the characters are but Lisa and Sarah make it a special event to watch it together and boy, this one must have been really good.
The original purpose of the appendix was to allow our distant ancestors to digest grass.
