TV reviews overheard: we're not the only ones without lives
Today after I dropped my oldest son off at preschool, my five-month-old and I went out for a leisurely breakfast. The place was empty when we arrived, but slowly began to fill up with those-who-don't-work- during-the-day. The couple who sat next to me looked over at me as if to say, oh, a stay-at-home mom. Bor-ing. And the young woman started talking about how she filled her spare time...watching TV that she didn't even like.
On her days off, she watched daytime talk shows, and celebrity entertainment shows, and sometimes (hilariously, evidently) she and her friends put their pajamas on at seven o'clock, ordered pizza, and watched TV. Hahaha! She also gave a play-by-play description of Surface that made the show seem, well, bor-ing. And as I wickedly plotted the post I'd write based on her inane observations, I realized: none of us (not even the single, childless among us) have lives. And some of us... have no taste in TV. My advice: if you're single, childless, and think you're hip (or even if you're none of those things) fill your time watching good TV. And read TV Squad to find out what, exactly, that is.
