July 8, 2013
Well, friends, today is Monday. I gather most people do not enjoy Mondays, but I rather look forward to them. And not only because I like my job and my coworkers—though I do, immensely. I look forward to Mondays because of what happens at 8:00 p.m. Yes, dear readers, almost every Monday night for the last year and a half, I have joined 6 millionish others to watch ABC’s The Bachelor/Bachelorette. (Shout out to fellow-warrior Kelcie for sucking me in.)
Now, had I written that statement a year ago, this is the part where I’d be anticipating all sorts of shocked, outraged comments. But my secret has been out for a while, and I’ve found out that most of you don’t care. Still, I do feel an overly-defensive need to explain myself in some way, lest you think the shelves full of classic novels and the old-timey blog design are a sham.
