I got engaged in St. Augustine, Florida in August of 2010. It was an amazing trip that ended with a gorgeous ring on my finger and a promise of a new life with my best friend. This was not, however, the thing that defined that trip. No. You see we drove there. And back. My dad loves a road trip and it was one of the final times that a large majority of us Lutz’s would be able to jump in a car and ride for hours upon hours upon hours together. So in preparation for the drive I gathered up tv shows on dvd to entertain myself. One in particular. LOST. I didn’t know. How could I have.
I started watching LOST on the way down and got through all of season 1 by the second day of the trip when my DVD privileges were revoked. I enjoyed the remainder of my vacation as best an addict can enjoy something with out their fix. But in the back of my mind I couldn’t help but wonder what was in store for Jack and Kate and Sawyer.
On the way home from our week at the beach, with a bright and shiny new piece of jewelry sparkling on my left hand, I plowed through season 2 like a champ only taking out my headphones for bathroom breaks and snack stops.
This is where the story turns sad. Once we returned, we were thrown into the crazy year that is planning a wedding. Especially when your not getting married in the continental 48. LOST got, well, lost. It got shoved aside and put on the back burner. It got packed away and moved several times. And then in January we bought a smart TV. That has Netflix right there on the remote. And there was my gateway back into my addiction. I, of course, had to start the series over. And here I sit, updating my website, editing pictures, writing descriptions for @jolly’s. And obsessively watching LOST.
If you haven’t ever watched LOST I want you to pretend you never saw this blog post. Don’t start. Don’t become curious as to what your missing out on. It’s too much. Unless you have an open week with nothing else to do. Or a 12 hour car ride…
I promise I will get dressed tomorrow. And share that with you. But for now. I must continue on this journey. I must find out if Juliette is really a bad guy. I have to see if Charlie dies. I must know if Jin and Sun have a healthy baby. I can’t rejoin the world until I know if my friends are ok.
Is there a support group for this?
until next time,
