personal addition 14 – TV shows

Excellent question Melissa. What are some of our favourite TV series to binge watch? I always go back to “The Office” or “Parks and Rec” or “30 Rock”. I just watched an episode of “The Good Wife” on Netflix, where a main character gets killed off. It bothered me so much, that I went back and re-watched some other episodes in the seasons so I could pretend the character didn’t die. What are some other side- effects of binge watching TV?

The elephant in the room

In this boxed shaped compartment on wheels everyone stands too close for comfort in an assembly line. Looking through the sea of noise and strangling tongues, I can see few familiar faces. Strangers vomit their words into this dirty toilet bowl of an atmosphere. Sweaty hands hold onto the yellowing pole, three other hands latch onto this pole for dear life.

My eardrums started to ring as sharp,dirty fingernails began scratching the interior of my chirping stomach. The pounding of my heartbeat raced with anxiety and fell into the dark pit of fear like the drop of doom. The lady with a bee’s nest of hair stands hunched before me, hoisting herself onto the platform, and forgetting her posture at the grocery store. I leap two feet to get the one seat absorbed with dirt and I sit while hugging my bag. Tears of panic thunderstorm down my cheeks and…
