We Care About Your Life Why? (or My April Rant)
I confess, I do watch such 'reality' TV shows as Project Runway (never let my kids watch it since their are typically many gays on this one), Top Chef (don't let my kids watch this one since their are typical many lesbians on this one), Chopped (don't let my kids watch this one since...well, you get the idea), Food Network Challenge, The Apprentice (now Celebrity Apprentice) etc. But looking at my choices, they are in reality (no pun intended) mostly competition shows. I stopped watching soap operas decades ago, I don't want to watch somebody else airing their lives as some kind of soap. It is not that interesting to me.
My reality is quite enough for me. My 12yo was upset Sunday. He said, "It is against the commandment to keep the Lord's Day holy to do unnecessary work. Why do I have to do the dishes?" I tried not to laugh as I explained to him that dishes were necessary to eat off on Sunday just like any other day of the week. Yep, how is that for a child throwing their Faith back in your face. Reality TV? Who needs it? I really need to watch less TV.
