“PAUSE, PAUSE, PAUSE!!!” I was yelling at the remote and pushing every button.  I had somehow put the TV show my husband and I were watching  in fast-forward mode.  Exasperated, I tossed the remote to my husband who deftly found the pause button and stopped the madness.  After he stopped laughing, he revoked my remote
