Exhibit A: I Am Old and Crotchety
My family watches American Chopper almost every time it airs. I watch it with them sometimes. Last night we were watching some clip show retrospective kind of thing and I realized that it really distresses me when the guys destroy things, like chairs and windows and Ford Explorers. In my head I’m like, “that’s a perfectly good couch – you could give it to poor children or something!” My dad is also bothered a bit by the destruction of property, while my younger sisters think it’s “deadly awesome” and “freakin’ hilarious.” This is clearly a sign that I will one day be carefully washing my paper towels in the sink and hanging them up to dry so that I can reuse them.
Exhibit B: I Am Out of My Damn Mind
Last night we also watched Nashville Star – or, more accurately, we kind of TiVoed through NS at fast speed, since everyone but my mom and I had seen it the night before. During this quick viewing, I found myself powerfully and inexplicably attracted to Bret Michaels. Yeah, formerly of Poison. Yeah, with the stupid cowboy hats and the history of having sex with Pamela Anderson. Yeah, I don’t know either.

Sigh. Bret Michaels…. nothing but a good time.
Next to the “screwy face” photo are two categories. One is labeled, “self”. Scrolling through those pictures I found more pics of almost-nude men than I believe most would expect.

It’s good to see that you are not sucked into the wanton wastefulness of American Chopper. I’m glad you know enough not to let yourself become desensitized.
