As usual, I’m checking out Netflix for shows to watch and recommend to you. As a member of the Netflix Stream Team, I’ll do the dirty work so you don’t have to.
There’s a phrase going around the internet that all the cool kids are using…
Netflix and chill?
Yes, Ryan….I do. Er…what?!?
Sex. It means to have sex. Pretty crazy that this old, tired mommy could crack that code but I did
*brushes off glitter on my shoulder*
And while that is super awesome, I’m going to admit that I’m not down.
I chill and watch Netflix to, um, watch Netflix and chill out. As a parent, I have to chill out. I. HAVE. TO. CHILL. I live to have chill time. It’s so rare.
Chill means I’m eating yummy food without kid paws grabbing my chips. Chill means I don’t have to share my couch. Chill involves wine and relaxing and nobody stealing my throw pillow. My chilling time is great when I’m with my spouse but also great when I’m alone.
Lately, I’ve been checking out Narcos, the newest Netflix original.
Why would I have sexy time doing this action packed show of drugs and crazy?? I don’t think so.
And I’m finally starting How To Get Away With Murder. Viola Davis just won an Emmy for her lead role in this show. Since I LOVED HER in The Help, I’m sure I’ll be hooked on this TV hit series in no time.
No distracting sexy sex for me.
So, the next time you hear the phrase “Netflix and chill”, remember it has a completely different meaning to parents.
We take our chill time very seriously.
