Definition of GUILTY PLEASURE
Is there something you like to do that makes time pass in an instant? You know, a little something you keep to yourself in fear of being judged... Do you vacuum in high heels? Sing show tunes in the shower?
Justin's involves a swift river. Another friend, who shall remain nameless, only buys animal print under garments. My mother, I am such a tattle tale, loves crazy animal videos - and looking for rescue dogs. She would not give up her precious Bea for the world, but if it weren't for my father, she might become a hoarder. I think my father's is the Roku player I bought him for Valentine's Day last year. He could be in line for some kick backs owing to all the people he shared the secret with. When I asked Kathleen what hers was, she said, "This could take some time and might be a long list."
Kathleen had a point. When I started pondering I thought I only had one - heh.
I'll tell you the ones that top my list;
- Window Shopping - I can't help myself. There has been many a deadline I have struggled to meet because I was perusing. I am doing it all the time. I window shop online, in the street and through my camera lense. It is not about a need to spend (other than time); people, places and things inspire me. Fantastic displays, unexpected colors,the odd and the obscure, a little window dressing and my mind is racing. I could be miles and days away and I am still thinking about what delighted me.
- I speak for all of our animals - they have their own voices and long conversations. Charlie's is forever youthful and has a lisp. He teases Bea to no end. Her's is a cross between Katherine Hepburn and Paula Deen. She is a big help in the kitchen and is known channel Marilyn Monroe when she wants something from a man. Ernest has yet to speak English, but my sister in law, Kate, is certain it will be with a Russian accent.
- My Pandora playlist; Cliff Richard has a station...
- The test kitchen that is most often set up in my home, but follows me where ever I venture. I have the curves to prove it!
Guilty Pleasures can make a long day short and bad day good...A bit like love!
