So, I had the following conversation with a friend of mine this morning. In an effort to protect her identity, I will call her "Candy". (I'm sure she will love that)
Candy: I realized something last night
Candy: This time of year (fall) REALLY stresses me out.
I mean, first you have the fact that all of our weekends are spent out of town at football games or other such things.
Then, the biggest thing is Fall TV.
here are so many shows to watch and so little time.
My DVR list is so long and I never have time to catch up!
I don't even have time to read all of my magazines waiting on my kitchen counter Katie!
me: i know. i was thinking along those same lines yesterday b/c we're going to be gone all weekend and i can't catch up on my tv
well you can read the magazines on the road
Candy: I can't believe there are people in Africa worried about where they will find their next piece of bread or drink of water when there is real stuff to worry about like Fall TV and magazines.
me: ha!! i know .. and what we will wear to biggie's wedding, rehearsal dinner., etc
me: and do we have enough yellow stuff to wear for tech games?
Candy: I think I need to take a sick day
me: maybe you should!
Candy: And I have zero time to do my nails
Now, you may read this and think "how shallow ... we have serious problems facing this country -- national security, education, terrible economy, increasing crime, etc." And you would be correct. But the point is that life gets increasingly difficult as we age, and I personally think it is important to find an outlet. My outlet is TV. Maybe a better outlet would be exercise, or reading, charity work, or something educational. But for me, TV it is. Don't you dare judge me!!
*** Side note: Candy and I had this conversation in jest. If you know her at all, you'll be able to figure out who Candy really is and you also know that she was only kidding. Kindof
PANTHER -- does this count as gossiping about my friends?
