My Guilty Pleasure

I’ve always had guilty pleasures. Maybe I just have bad taste, but I like to think if I recognize the badness, then I have good taste, I just don’t employ it often. A guilty pleasure, per wikipedia is:

“something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. The “guilt” involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one’s lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes, such as campy styles of entertainment.”

guiltyMy latest one is… real housewives. As in -of Orange County or -of Beverly Hills. It’s not the people (although, Heather Dubrow, my freaking idol), or the catfights, or the bad taste. Or the good taste. It’s all of it and none of that. It’s knowing that, really, it doesn’t matter how much you have or how easy your life appears, it’s only as happy as you choose to be.

That being said, my oldest daughter and I have spent many an evening, mouths agape, asking, “Did she really just say that? Go back.” Maybe it’s the catfights a little bit.

What are your guilty pleasures? Please make me feel better.

About Lori Sizemore

Lover of nail polish, pens, her Kindle, and fresh coffee. She likes romance filled with messy, real characters and lots of snarky banter. Reading was (and still is!) her BFF; when she discovered writing she fell in love. Sassy humor for the heart, captivating contemporary romance for the soul.

    Romance novels… haha, just kidding., or am I? 😀

  2. Vampire books, and TV shows. Seriously, I LOVE vampires–I was totally addicted to Twilight (and I am not ashamed to admit it, thank you very much), and The Vampire Diaries, and Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series, and am binge watching Buffy (although I’m in Season 6, and I think they jumped the shark when Giles left). I wish I knew what the appeal was…
