My Bewitching Hour
Last night was probably the worst...yes, worse than reading Mongolian out loud. I had about fifteen minutes before I really needed to sleep, when I stumbled upon Extreme Cougar Wives on TLC. Oh. My. Gosh. This show is captivating, mesmerizing and fantastic all at the same time. What's the premise you ask? Um, just women in their late 60s and 70s having relations (that's for you Mom) with men 35+ years their junior. Fantastic. Right? How did they meet, you ask? Um, one young man was dating the 54 year old woman's daughter until he turned 20 and then...well...then love happened. I actually watched 30 minutes of this show standing up with the remote in my hand because I was so fascinated by these people.
Next week Stephanie, a 68 year old woman, goes to the beach with her 28 year old boyfriend, and has to endure the mocking from his friends as they play volleyball. Will I watch? Um, I sure as heck didn't put my baby to sleep to knit something if that is what you are wondering.
Please help me. I didn't go to bed until 11:45 last night. 11:45. I spent 72 minutes of my life watching this show. There's got to be a better way.
