Q4U: Guilty Pleasures
Every once in awhile, on a Friday night, my husband will be at work and my kids will be gone at sleepovers and I’ll have a whole evening to myself. This is maybe twice a year. But when it happens… ah, bliss.
I carefully select some fruit and cheeses for my dinner, and pour a glass of merlot. Then I get comfy on the sofa, put my feet up, make sure there are no books or manuscripts within arm’s reach… and settle in to watch two, maybe even three TV shows in a row. I always have several saved up—I TiVo a lot of shows but rarely watch any. So I might have some episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” or “House” or “The Closer.” You know, pure entertainment.
And I will relax and forget about everything and just enjoy my wine and cheese and my shows.
That’s my guilty pleasure.
