Guilty Pleasure

I am sure you’re probably thinking that I am going to
write about my love for chocolate. I could do that, but perhaps that
topic has been overdone by many and what more could I really say about
it.
Maybe I’ll write about wine. I was in the industry for close to 10 years. Oh the stories I could tell about what I saw and what I did while I worked in one of the most interesting and intoxicating industries ever! Surely I have a lot to say about wine…but…that part of my life is over and I really need to move on.

Aren’t these writing prompts suppose to reveal a little part of our personalities? Give the readers a little more insight to the writer? Oh! How about….no…I’m not ready to write about that yet. Ahhh…I have it. I know exactly what I will write about for this topic.

Let’s go back in time. It wasn’t that long ago really. It was invented during my lifetime…do you have any idea what my guilty pleasure is yet? Let’s see…how about another hint or two. It has to do with technology. No, it’s not the computer or anything related to that. But… you might be on the right track.

It’s something related to an object that most of us use every day. Actually, it’s an object that you put inside of something that attaches to the thing that most of us use every day. Come to think of it…it’s what is on the object that you put inside of the something that attaches to an object that most of us use every day.

Are you totally confused yet?
Ok…I’ll tell you! My guilty pleasure is…
…my ever growing, extensive, and totally cool collection of ….

Christmas DVDs!!!

Yes, you’re probably thinking, “Lame, lame, lame, lame, lame!”. 
Sorry, but these are my “Go To, Totally Comforting, Gotta Have It, Calgon Take Me Away From All the Negative Distractions in My Life”. Seriously, when I can’t take it anymore, I just pop one of these movies in and I can go to bed with happy thoughts in my head instead of crappy thoughts in my head.
I must have over 50 movies now and the collection grows every year. I used to just watch them in December, but then I started to watch them twice a year. I called it my Christmas in July marathon and the Traditional Holiday Movie Watching Bonanza. Now, I watch them whenever I am feeling blue and need a pick-me-up or if I need a little noise in the background while I am cleaning, doing the dishes or writing. 
So my guilty pleasure is my Christmas DVDs and I am proud to admit it. Now I love chocolate too and I am currently working my way thru a bag of Dove Chocolate as I write this, but my Christmas movies…well…they really do bring me a lot of pleasure!
What’s your guilty pleasure? I’d love to hear about it!

Wishing you moments of whatever guilty pleasure you choose!

  • What a refreshing guilty pleasure and so cool of you to think to share it! I could say mine are wine and chocolate, but truth be told, I feel no guilt about either, so I still have to work on mine!

  • Susan, you've inspired me to partake in one of my most guilty pleasures….watching movies! I need to make time for a good movie now and then ALL BY MYSELF! 😉 Nice blog.

  • Love that. My husband insists we watch "White Christmas" every holiday season. It never gets old! And of course "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is a classic.

  • Wow, I didn't expect that, but I know a couple of people who share this guilty pleasure. Merry Christmas in May!

  • How interesting, Susan. 50 movies? I'd love to see your list.
