My Guilty Pleasure … but how bad can it really be if it’s in Season 29?!

*This post was written in response to today’s Daily Challenge: Grateful and Guilty. “Whether it’s a trashy TV show, extra-pulpy fiction, or nutrient-free candy, write a thank you note to your guiltiest guilty pleasure.”

Well, I don’t like to admit it
I’m a little shy to say …
But it is my guilty pleasure
And that is the prompt today!

I know I’m not the only one
Since it’s Season 29!
There must be something good in it
It’s been going all this time!

I should just come out and say it
And I’ll get it off my chest
My guilty pleasure’s Survivor
I know … it’s not the best!

I’m not sure what it is for me
It’s partly ‘bout the travel
I’m not as much interested
In seeing them unravel

I quite like all the challenges
And those setups are insane!
And I love the strategic part
When players flex their brain!

I like the chance to see the world
And pretend that I’m there too
Although if I was really there
There’s things I wouldn’t do!

I wouldn’t throw the team’s rice out
Like the girl last season did
And I wouldn’t leave an auction
Without making a bid!

I wouldn’t wait for idol clues
To go searching in the sand
And I’d make sure I didn’t go home
With an idol in my hand!

You know, who am I kidding here?
If I were ever to go
I’d be at an all-inclusive
Not stressing on this show!

As I sit watching my little girl, I think about all of the events that led to her becoming a part of our lives. She is the most important thing to me, and I am so grateful for her and for my family. When I think about the circumstances that led to today, I can’t help but think that her presence here can be traced back to one major decision. A decision that was based on the weather! Baby E is in my life because Victoria is the city with the nicest weather in Canada. Let me explain … Continue reading “Weekly Writing Challenge: The Butterfly Effect”
