If you’ve been an LOB reader for a while, you’re well aware I’m late on the 24 train.
I may have been late to fall in love with the television show, but it didn’t make me fall any less hard. I quickly became 24 obsessed. My dad has a “Jack Bauer for President” shirt. I want one, and I don’t care how dated it is.
For over a year now, I’ve been catching up on season after season, and since I now have Netflix, this process has been expedited.
I’m actually about to finish 24 Season 7. Just in time for Walking Dead to come back on the air, right?
Anyway, this past Saturday morning, I was laying on my couch watching 24 Season 7 when my instagram feed silently pops up on my iPhone.
I gasped, freaking out everyone in the room.
And then I took a screen shot for proof.
Here I am, watching Jack Bauer fight terrorists on a typical Saturday morning…
As Kiefer Sutherland decides to sign up for Instagram and search #jackbauerforpresident. Which had to be the case, since my photo was from about 48 weeks ago, according to my feed.
And don’t ask me if it’s really him, because I checked. And it is.
Kiefer and I are now besties.
Which I proceeded to tell everyone on Instragram, because I thought this was the coolest thing on earth.
And then he liked THAT photo.
So, yeah. Besties.
[Important side note: my maternal grandmother's last name was Sutherland. Mom, can we double-check that family tree?]
I think I just gained like 500 cool points.
That number would be higher, but since I’m telling you all about this with the maturity of a 13 year old, it’s only 500.
