I shouldn’t be allowed to watch TV after 8pm. I make terrible TV decisions at night. Instead of watching reality TV like normal people, I get completely sucked into terrifying movies and never-ending shows on the History channel about war. And then I have bad dreams or simply don’t sleep at all because the world is scary y’all.
Watching these movies and shows during the day doesn’t bother me in the slightest. I could spend 9-5 watching the most frightening movies imaginable and it has no effect on me, but if it’s late at night, I become a very frightened young lady who sleeps with a baseball bat beside her bed. You would think I would have learned the first time, or even the first couple of times that this happened. Nope. I didn’t.
Last night, I did it again. I turned on the television and thought to myself, ” What could a movie about exorcism hurt?” Let me tell you what it hurt- it hurt my chance of restful sleep last night that’s what it hurt. And I knew it would. I *knew* it. But I still watched it. And I’ll do it again. Why? Because I make bad television watching decisions.
One might argue that I could just exhibit a little more self-control next time. That one would be wrong. I *can’t* exhibit more self-control next time. Really. I can’t. I’m incapable of making reasonable television watching decisions after dark. Completely incapable of it. And now I’ve had to add like 20 new things to my list of things I should be afraid of. And that list is getting too long y’all. Too long and too scary.
So, I’m looking for someone/something to blame. Any ideas? Right now, I’m leaning towards blaming the cable company. What do you think?
