“Are you a fan of the show?” I asked her.
“Oh yeah,” she said, “I’ve already seen MJ here, and Cameran [two other, more recent Real World faves]. There’s been a bunch of Real World people here.”
“I’ve been watching it since high school,” I said.
“Oh, me too!” she said.
Then I reflected that, for me, this meant since the show debuted; for her, it meant since last season; which in turn caused me to reflect mournfully on what a poseur she was. Did she even remember the Miz’s cast? Probably she knew him only from The Real World/Road Rules Challenge, which—although he is awesome on that—is not the best place to get insight into what makes him such a powerful fun-generator.
