Shut the Beat Down

Last night, Dan and I were watching The Bachelorette as usual. As I might have mentioned before, he's completely addicted to it. He even reads Bachelorette Ashley's blog on People.com the morning after each show. What I mean to say is: he's invested.

So, last night during the home visits when Constantine's dad asked him if he thought he'd be ready to propose, Dan was super confused.

"What?" he asked. "HE proposes? Doesn't SHE get to pick?"

"Yes," I explained, "she chooses the person whom she'd like to propose to her."

Dan was flabbergasted. "But that's sexist!" he exclaimed.

I laughed for about five minutes about his indignation. It's like he thought he was watching Masterpiece Theater or something, instead of THE BACHELORETTE.

"I'm beginning to think this show is totally scripted," he said, shaking his head. "Scripted AND sexist."
