Have you ever noticed how easy it is to become attached to something in our life? I’m not even necessarily talking about something big or important, I’m talking about some of the smaller things that we may interact with on a daily basis. When those things cease to operate or be a part of our life, some of us let go easily but others may struggle in this regard. Sheldon has an obvious difficulty with letting go.
If there is one thing that we have learned about Sheldon over the years, it’s the fact that he can be a little bit obsessive-compulsive. In this clip, we see that his computer is dying and it breathes its last breath. Amy rushes into the apartment, only moments after the computer dies and they give it a proper burial, playing taps and standing for a moment of silence.
It may seem funny for us to watch something like this, but you would be surprised with how many of us have similar feelings. Perhaps that is why we find the Big Bang theory so amusing, because it brings our own idiosyncrasies to life.
