I have had the last few days completely to myself. My dog is at her grandparents (yes, she knows them by name), my brother is out there also & therefore...I have had the pleasure of being completely alone since Friday. For those that don't know me very well, I love time with myself. I don't get bored, I don't feel lonely...it is actually the best way for me to get back into balance after working & spending all my time taking care of others.
So last night...after my Chick-fil-a dinner (I am not a healthy eater at all) & a stop at Wendy's for a frosty...I turned on my tv & took a look at what I had on the DVR. I noticed a show I have been seeing advertised for quite a few weeks....Toddlers & Tiaras. Has anyone else had the pleasure (lol) of watching this new show? If not.....do so......if you feel like laughing & feeling "normal."
Last night's episode was some pageant that sounded more like something you'd order at Taco Bell......Grande Supreme something or other. Not only was it babies & children competing...but their mothers also could compete against them. You know the type...stage moms who are putting their daughters through this ridiculous pagentry because they never got to have the spotlight when they were young (I'm guessing). Well, last night was their chance & a few of them took it.
I don't know which "story" was more comical. The mom who looked about 77, but was really only 47 with a beautiful 6 yr old daughter. The mom & stage dad (who I truly believe is gay or he is in denial about being gay) with the barely 2 yr old that had no concept of what she was even doing at this pageant. Or the perfectionistic mother of a 10 yr old (I think she was 10)....all I can say is wow...makeup really does wonders. This was a plain looking 10 yr old until they added the makeup & hairpieces. Then she was absolutely beautiful with an attitude to match.
I'm not going to give away anymore details...well, ok....spandex plays a part...but you have got to see it for yourself. I think it's on TLC or some such network & I'm sure they'll be replaying it 93032 times this week.
Check it out...let me know what you think!
p.s. Go Cardinals!
