15 Minutes of Fame

Well, you know that when my back is hurting I spend a large part of the day staring at the tv. I know I've talked about the wonderful shows (NOT) that come on during the late night hours, but the daytime ones are just as, um, thrilling.

I guess people can't get enough court tv all night because it comes on all day also. I was watching Judge Alex the other day and this couple was telling every deep dark secret they ever had to millions of viewers...well, maybe thousands.

It went something like this:

Her-All I wanted was for him to go with me to my daddy's birthday party.

Him-Judge, I was busy. I work all week and that was my only day off. I had a lot to do. I tell you, I was busy! You know what I'm saying?

Judge- Well, no, not exactly.What were you so busy doing that you couldn't go to her daddy's party?

Him-Judge I was busy.

Judge- Yeah, I got that. Busy doing what?

Him- I was...uh.Judge,you, Judge you know.....I was reading!

(I guess you had to see them to get how completely ridiculous that statement was.)


another conversation:

Her-I pull up to my parking space and there is a strange car parked MY space! I never SEEN that car. I didn't KNOW that car. I had never been intro to the owner of that car...but there it was. Just sitting in MY space, just like it belonged there.

More Her-So I walk in MY house and find some strange woman laying there rubbing his back. I didn't know that woman. I never seen that woman before that day. I was never introduced to that woman. I never sent out an invitation to that woman, but there she was!

Judge- (to the man) Do you have a response to that?

Him-Judge, I was as surprised as SHE was!


HHmmmm I wonder if Judge Alex has a blog?

Just as surprised as she was????? Oh my goodness! Where do they find these people. Oh wait, I know, they are everywhere because I encountered them all the time as a labor and delivery nurse.

That last one is really pathetic!

And folks like that are raising children and voting!!

hysterical. But I want to know how some of those morons got to be judges?

I'm sorry. I want to leave a comment, but I just read your response in the "knitting" comments, and now I can hardly stop laughing enough to form a coherent thought.
Wow, and my typing is hindered too. I'm doing lots of back-spaces and correcting.
Thanks for making me smile.

I'm speechless.

I'm laughing hysterically and stunned at the same time. What is REALLY sad is that people want to watch that kind of stuff.

(Not referring to people who hurt their back and can't do anything besides watch lame tv shows. They at least bring purpose to the show by reporting it on their blog so others don't get lured in.) :)

Oh my stars. At least I know I'm not missing a thing by having a small and mostly silent TV. I love Bonita's comment. People are funny. So are monkeys. : )
