Day 16 of 2013
It's Wednesday ... on Wednesday I have control of the remote and get to pick what we watch on TV. I usually pick the same thing. Comedy to start out. "The Middle" has the lady who played in "EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND", I think that's what it was called. The man who plays her husband on this new show "THE MIDDLE" is the man that played the janitor on that hospital show where the young Dr talked to himself through most of the show. Ok so we watch that at 8pm. At 8:30 we just leave it where it is and the show about the alien neighbors comes on. Sometimes it funny but we haven't found anything else to watch so this is it. At 9pm I change the channel to watch "TOP CHEF". I like seeing what they can do when put to the test. But the language. That's where the problem is. Why would you NOT put on your best face. I think they use foul language for shock value only. If my son or daughter was wonderful enough in their cooking skills to be chosen to take part in a TV show I would want to tell everyone to watch. I would point out my child. knowingly lie as I say they get their skill from me. But who would claim the foul mouthed men and women on this show. There are so many bleeps I miss some of the actual conversation and I want to know what's going on. I would be embarrassed to let anyone know I am related to these men and women no matter how wonderful their skill. The filth they spew touches me like acid. I wince.
What happened to integrity. Doesn't it matter how you are thought of. When you talk shouldn't you give consideration to who is listening. It's not ok to say what you think unless you are the only one in the room.
Let's get back to teaching our children to respect others. To treat others the way you would like to be treated. I won't use foul language infront of you and you show me the same courtesy. Let me watch TV without my hands over my ears. I choose my movies so I am not offended by what I see or hear. When I am at home relaxing on the couch I would also like to enjoy what I watch without the wincing. Without being assaulting through the words of others. I know you are probably saying ... change the channel ... I am really saying WOW, WHAT ARE THEY TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN. Do they punish their children for using language they hear mom and dad use? I told my children to do as I do not just as I say.
So come on ... set an example. Show some INTEGRITY
Thank you for letting me ramble on today
Talk to you tomorrow
Welcome To What's Up With Me!!
This year I want to get personal, to just talk, I have used my blog for business for so long I have grown tired of trying to keep it up dated. SOOOOOO I thought I would give you pieces of my mind ... LOL little pieces at a time.
Now I will from time to time show you what's new in my etsy.com shop but mostly I just want to relax, unwind or get uptight whatever the day brings. But now I'm going to put into words what I'm thinking, what I'm going through, what I'm happy about.
This may become therapy, way cheaper this way!!!
