You have got to love this Wikipedia defition of a “guilty pleasure”:
A guilty pleasure is something one considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. Often, the “guilt” involved is simply fear of others discovering one’s lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes, rather than actual moral guilt. Fashion, music, and food (especially unhealthier foods high in sugar and/or fat) can be examples of guilty pleasures
We all have guilty pleasures.
Surely, I am not alone in this?
Well, anyway…I have one several. But one I will share with you to get this started:
General Hospital – I know it is a “soap opera.” I know that “soap operas” are for people who stay at home all day long and are forced to watch the television. I know “soap operas” have far-fetched plots. I know. I know. But for some crazy reason I love this “soap opera.” I do. I do. I love the complicated (but oh so predictable) characters: the lovable but brooding mobster, the fearless woman who is always getting herself into jams, the trainwreck couples who can never seem to stay together or stay apart. For me, there just is something oddly comforting about General Hospital. Seriously, I tape it EVERY day so that it is on my DVR just in case if I want to tune in and see what is happening in Port Charles.
Guilty pleasure indeed.
Your turn…name one of your guilty pleasures. Oh, and make it a good one.
