The Geek Files: BBTSHG

For some of us, being a TV Geek is a sad, lonely existence. But not for Pusher. Nope- for her, Geekin' has always been a family affair. Now, she's ready to share a few childhood memories that prove that maybe the V-chip is a good idea. Here's this week's Geek Files.

Every TV Geek should have a twin who also possesses the TV Geek gene. Then we all would have fond memories of playing the "Bunk Bed Theme Song Humming Game." Since I seem to be the only person (besides PusherTwin) who has such a memory, let me explain. BBTSHG is only played during certain hours of the day - after primetime programming has ended and before one of the two players actually falls asleep. The game went a little something like this:

PusherTwin in the bottom bunk: "Pusher, you awake?"
Pusher in the top bunk: "Yeah."
PusherTwin: "OK - what about this one? Hmm Hmm Hmmmmmmm, Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm Hmmmmmmmmm."
Pusher: "Dallas."
PusherTwin: "Isn't it funny that we don't even watch the shows that we know the theme songs too?"
Pusher: "Yeah, let's not tell too many people about that, huh. What about Hmmmm Hmmm Hmmm Hmmmm Hm Hm Hm, Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm?"
PusherTwin: "That's the second part of Punky Brewster."

Don't get me wrong. They weren't all as easy as Dallas and Punky Brewster. Try humming Matt Houston, Vega$ or Lime Street. This is the big leagues, kid! The best was when I'd hum a song and think PusherTwin was just taking her time deciphering it when in reality she had fallen asleep.

No one can keep up with me.
