I chilled out on the couch and laid Crosby on my chest where she fell asleep faster than Slash taking down a shot of Jack. However, the trick to this game is that I am not allowed to fall asleep myself. Working with the one hand I had free I was able to grab the remote to the TV (no cable) and the DVD player. It had been a long time since I had watched a DVD in that player and when I pressed play I was at the mercy of whatever mood I was in last time I inserted a disc. Was it the Godfather from when I had a few too many on Saturday night and had a legit Godfather Sunday chill out? Hopefully, it was not a Redbox that was never returned and we have now purchased for $25.
I held my breath, looked at Crosby and awaited as the title screen loaded to...the Robert Redford classic "A River Runs Through It". I was instantly overwhelmed with pride because Crosby had selected such a well-acted, beautifully told story. What started as a mess ended with some young Pitt, Laura getting 2.5 hours of sleep and Crosby finally being quiet. I thoroughly enjoyed my first installment of Crosby's masterpiece theater. Hopefully next time the show time will not begin at 3 am.
