Let's jump right in. Today's topic is addiction. Now, this is not a laughing matter, so I don't want people to think that I'm making light of a serious situation. Having an addiction to anything is really not the best case scenario, but I guess some addictions are better than others.
Comanche and I were taking some time to unwind yesterday after another exceptionally busy week/weekend. To be honest, it was a perfect evening - the two of us (and three dogs, if we're being honest) on the couch, chillaxing with Chinese takeout and conversation. He made the joke that I am addicted to funny things (well, they are funny to him). Here was the list: television, the computer, my dogs, and couponing. LOL! It does sounds humorous when said in list form.
But, I think he has a strong case. Let's work through these one by one, because I'm completely fine with just "owning it."
Okay, I'm guilty. Throw the book at me. I love TV. Being as I work for a TV station, I feel as though it's my vital responsibility to partake in television shows regularly (and by regularly, I mean every.single.night.of.the.week). I mean, who isn't excited for these shows this week?
|Yes, please! Who will win?!?!|
|I give it a 10!|
|The suspense is killing me! SO glad Haley went home!|
|I DIE!!!!! MAY 26TH!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!! FAVE SHOW!!!!!|
|Cannot wait for this season finale on Wednesday!|
2. The computer.
I'll go ahead and jump on this grenade, as well. I have to use the computer every day at work, and obviously, when I get home, the computer provides me with a wealth of information. I check my facebook, I blog (which is clearly the most important thing you have to read, so you're welcome), I pay bills online, I check movie times, I double and triple-check recipes and cooking instructions, and a multitude of other things. I think those are more than justified reasons to be addicted to your computer/the internet.
3. My dogs.
Duh. There is no argument here. Ask any mother, and she'll tell you that when she looks into the big eyes of her children, she feels compelled to make them happy. Okay, maybe all mothers except for those of teenagers (or extremely fussy babies). But, if you had fur-children that looked like this, you would totally understand:
|Oh my gosh, why are you the cutest dogs that have ever lived?!?!?!?!?|
Okay, again, he's got me. This is probably my newest addiction, and it's actually one I've been wanting to write about for some time now. I just haven't had the time to do the kind of post I really want to be able to do. So, I am going to make you wait for it. I will be completely transparent here - my newest addiction does take quite a bit of time. Quite a bit of time is something that I don't have (or maybe I would have if I could shift some of my other addictions around). But, I will say this - I wouldn't allow myself to become addicted to couponing if I didn't see the value in it. So you'll have to keep checking back for more - it might interest you more than you currently think it will. ;)
In closing, "Hi. My name is Chicken Wing, and I am an addict."
Until next time,
