Have You Seen My Life?

It’s the Friday of a holiday weekend, and I got off of work a couple of hours early this afternoon. The kids are with their daddy for the next three days. I am a single woman with no one to tie me down. The sky is the limit. It’s time to live life to the fullest. Make some new memories. Put the pedal to the metal. Have me some holiday!

Yeah. Right.

Know what I’ve done so far? Well, to start my adventurous weekend, I took a two-hour nap. I know. Pretty crazy. But hang on. It gets even more exciting. I’ve just realized that I have spent the last four hours watching Arrested Development on IFC, with an episode of Maron thrown in. I’ve never seen these two shows before, and I must admit that they are funny. But that’s not the point. I’ve just spent over four hours watching tv.

Have you noticed that you rarely see people on tv shows watching television themselves? Yeah. That’s because they have better things to do than watch tv. And I have better things to do myself. And yet, here I sit. Now watching the same episode of Arrested Development that I watched at the beginning of the night.

Oh my God. I have to get a life!
