It’s Friday! I got the idea for this post while cleaning off my DVR this morning. Tucked away in a folder were the two Days of Our Lives episodes I missed this week. I realized my mom was babysitting at my house yesterday, probably saw that, and secretly made fun of me for being a “soap queen.”
I guess it’s my guilty pleasure.
When I was first home with my son, and wasn’t back to work yet, I’d catch an episode here and there during that boring 3:00 time slot that nothing else worth watching was on television.
And then when I started freelancing and was home every day, I found myself putting it on in the background, slowly getting sucked into the drama of Salem life.
Now, I’m a full-fledged fan and never miss a show. That hour-long escape into the crazy world of the Bradys and the DiMeras is my “me” time. And as much as my husband pretends he’s not interested, every now and then he’ll ever so casually ask me what happened with a certain story line. I know he’s hooked.
Having a guilty pleasure is just plain fun. Embrace it, and most likely, you’re in the company of many of your friends and family, you just don’t know it.
So paying homage to my guilty pleasure, “like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives…”
Have a great weekend everyone! What’s your guilty pleasure?
