Guilty Pleasures

I admit that I will be watching what most people consider a trashy television show tonight.  It has all the makings of what I love….romance, drama, crying and plot twists.  It will be several hours that will teach me nothing and yes…I love it.  It is true that I COULD be reading a good book instead.  But alas, we all have our guilty pleasures, and instead of denying mine, as I did for years, I now embrace it and laugh at myself.  I spend much time learning the intricacies of health care reform and watching what our family eats and volunteering and pinching pennies and making sure the kids and I get enough exercise.  Isn’t that enough payout for a guilty pleasure?  Everyone has one….What’s yours?
