Those Silly, Silly T.V. Shows

I’m not a big T.V. watcher. 


But I do spend a lot of time going through the program guide.  Browsing through 500 channels of crap keeps me constantly entertained.  My sister LOVES all those animal rescue shows.  I, on the other hand, can’t watch them.  Just seeing Animal Rescue Atlanta on the menu makes me cry.  Don’t get me wrong, I send kudos to the brave souls who give their time to rescuing animals in distress.  But my heart will shatter if I actually SEE them in distress even though I know they will be saved which is the whole point of the show.  My sister has a much stronger constitution.  She’s a teacher.


For me, the health and medical channels are the most interesting.  I never actually watch the shows, but the titles intrigue me.  One of these days I’m actually going to watch that show called The 400 Pound Tumor. 


But even more fascinating is the odd pattern I’m starting to see.  Here’s an example of the line-up I saw last week (actual shows):


My Small Breasts and Me


My Large Breasts and Me


I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant


I wonder if it featured the same woman.

I can take the horrible human tragedy stories all day long, but the animal in crisis shows kill me.

I saw the 400 lb tumor too! Can you believe how that woman changed! That was a big ‘ol monkey off her back! I saw it after I watched the Detroit Animal Cops save a dog with an embedded collar. Actually, it was an embedded chain from a large oil tanker. The dog was saved and found a wonderful home. Let me think, I may have seen that show the day Darnell scratched my arm until it bled and kicked the shit out of me with his big army boots…….ahhhhhhh, retirement can’t come soon enough. I’ll watch animals shows half… Read more »
