Today I have two questions for Wednesday Wonderisms:
1. Why is it so easy to get sucked into marathon episodes of television shows that you never watch or would never think to watch? This past Saturday morning, I awoke to find my hubby watching Ice Road Truckers on television. While I had heard of this show, I had never actually watched it before. So, I sat down and snuggled a bit with the old man and within minutes, became entranced. Before I knew it, I had watched like three back to back episodes in a kind of hypnotic trance. I don't want to offend any over the road - or ice - truckers out there, but I really have no interest in what they do or where they drive. I know, I know, that sounds kind of mean, but really, do they need their own show? I don't know how this happens...IRT is not the only show that has "gotten" me. Once, I watched like 7 or 8 back to back episodes of show about running a hair salon, not to mention the Top Chef marathon I watched last year! Are there subliminal messages hidden in these shows keeping you tuned in? (BTW, I don't run a hair shop nor am I a top chef).
2. Why is it always the worst, most annoying song that gets stuck in your head all day? My drive to work takes about 25 minutes. I can hear several different songs on the radio during my trip. Yes, I'm guilty of constantly changing the radio station instead of leaving it in one spot. Anyway, even if I hear 10 songs, most of which I would be singing along to, it is always that terrible song, that I couldn't get changed quick enough, that is stuck in my head ALL DAY! Mmm Bop.
What are wondering about today? If you are playing along, leave my a link so I can check out your questions!
Toodles for now!
