I can certainly understand why Hollywood writers would go on strike. Seems they are getting the short end of the money stick these days. But, this is really going to affect ME! Especially, my soap opera.
You see, I’ve been watching The Young & the Restless for more than 20 years. Probably closer to 30 years. It’s sad how long I’ve been watching this show, before I should have been watching it for sure, because I’m not that old! At any rate, I do watch it. Every day. Sometimes I save several episodes so that I can watch them together and have a soap marathon.
Sure, it’s like a Harlequin romance novel, but it’s mine. It’s time I spend unwinding from the day, realizing that my world isn’t so bad. Watching a soap opera makes you realize that your complaints may be minor in comparison to your neighbors. After all, how many of us have fallen in love only to find out the man of our dreams, who we almost had a baby with is really our biological twin brother lost at birth?
Thankfully, most of us only have to worry about work, our kids not listening to us when we tell him to stop playing in the kitty litter, or how to get to the grocery store today with a sick child. I’m not worried that my husband’s brother’s daughter’s cousin just got amnesia and doesn’t remember us, I just have to figure out what’s for dinner tonight.
