The Reality Is, It’s Not

Reality TV.

Guilty pleasure, total waste, whatever.

Why do we all wet ourselves over the weirdness of famous people? Sometimes not even famous people.

I totally do it too. I watched American Idol faithfully for more years than I care to admit. The Real World Seattle is, to this day, one of my favorite shows.

It’s not just TV, either. When we drive out in the sticks I find myself rubbernecking everything. At night especially – I love getting a glimpse into people’s houses, their nighttime life lit and framed in the windows.

Why is that? Why do I even care?

Care is a strong word, though. I know that I have no business looking like I do. My drive by nosiness isn’t invited, the reality tv is. Those people invite cameras in and the normal people I like to spy on have no clue.

I guess the moral of the story is, close your shades.
