The Reality of Reality Television

A conversation with my husband:

Me: …and so I was just blown away when she said that $400 was a decent price point for a shirt. I mean, who says that.

Him: You’re a junkie. You’re a reality TV junkie.

Me: I know. Isn’t it great? I mean, I think it just satisfies my deep desire to take random people that would never interact in real-life and lock them in a room, then observe what they do. It’s like The SIMS, but way less work.

Him: *blinks slowly* Ummmm, how long have you been a kidnapping psychopath?

Me: I’m not a psychopath. I’m a writer. I like to people watch, but I hate leaving home. Reality television is just people watching for introverts.
