This is my editorial from this past week of January 20, 2011 – Enjoy ~ Wanita’s Words
At this time of the year there’s nothing better than saturating oneself in fantasy…lounging on the sofa gazing tenatively into the tube. Housewives all over escape their mundane days to travel to another world that is full of drama and excitement. While ‘All My Children’ are at work playing out the ‘Days of our Lives’, the ‘Young and the Restless’ are trying to get a prescription at ‘General Hospital’ for ritalin from ‘The Doctors’ because they only have ‘One Life to Live’. No wonder there’s no time to get the laundry done, dust and vacuum and still keep up with what Oprah and Drl Phil are up to…but things aren’t much different in the evenings of our lives. I find myself in the same place at the same time gazing into McDreamy’s eyes while McSteamy is trying to save a life…(ps…don’t tell my husband) and now there’s a new sitcom with a McKiwi! There’s almost too much eye candy…and you know that too much candy isn’t good for anyone. ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘The Mentalist’ are ‘Fascinating People’ with ‘Criminal Minds’ that work at ‘The Office’ so ‘Judge Judy’ can see them in “The People’s Court’ to sentence them to take some therapy at a ‘Private Practise’. On another evening polygamist ‘Sister Wives’ are engaging in ‘Big Love’; they are certainly not complying with state ‘Law and Order’. My cat races out of the room when “Doggy Day” comes on and I think she needs therapy, too!
My God! What has this world come to!
What about those reality sitcoms that make our lives look like we live in a coma…my friends, ‘The Housewives of New York City’ should join forces with ‘TN Wrestling’. We can get the scoop on ‘The Insider’ on what it’s like to be ‘Dancing with the Stars’ or ‘Skating with the Stars’ (depending on the weather).
As you probably have guessed, I am having way too much fun with this but the truth is, we all need an outlet to let go of the stresses of everyday life and a little escape via the tube can’t always be bad as long as we keep perspective…”Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?”
