Wedlock (but not the kind you're thinking...)

For the 400th time this week, I had to return to my desk to grab Dex from his usual keyboard-cozy position under my monitor - I'd forgotten to grab him on my way to the bathroom. This "D'oh! Grab Dex!" boomerang move happens all the time at home and work, and every single one of those times makes me think of this super-cheesy sci-fi movie:

The premise: keeping prisoners in your prison is way easier when they're self-policing. So how do we make them behave and stay put? Strap a collar on their necks, link said collar electronically to another prisoner's, and if those partners are separated by more than 100 yards, the collar blows up! As no one knows who their partner is, no one strays too far.

Can you see why this reminds me of my relationship with Dex?

  1. Wow. That movie would give me awful nightmares.
    Keep Dex close!
