In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “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
I wanted to thank you for the laughs. In the midst of the craziness of my life and our country, you make my days lighter. For a short time, I am able to listen (via headphones because not everyone likes your language) and escape the madness.
Sometimes I laugh out loud ( get funny looks when I’m out), but I don’t care. For those few minutes or hours, I get to listen to you talk about things most won’t say out loud and paint a picture that moves me to laughter, and tears of unbridled glee.
Although I do on occasion let a particular word or two, maybe three (who’s counting) slip; it is so much easier to let you do the talking. I realize my behavior may be considered inappropriate, unchristian, listening to trash or even sinful by some. I say even God has a sense of humor and for anyone who says otherwise, well… let them walk around constipated with a prune face. For me, I’ll stay tuned with a laugh at the ready.
Your most grateful,
Uncensored Comedy Fan
