A few weeks ago I went to a movie with the lovely and talented Jerilyn. One of the previews included some familiar music. It was the theme to the soap opera "The Young and the Restless"...both of us had a story. Jerilyn used to watch with her mom (I'm jealous); whereas my story was much more devious.
I used to fake being sick ALL the time in junior high and high school so that I could -
a) skip Seminary
b) sleep in
c) watch "The Price is Right"
d) watch Y&R
I LOVED that soap! They had the most beautiful actors, fantastic story lines, ROMANCE, and it was on late enough that if I slept through Price is Right I could still get up in time for Y&R.
I would set my alarm for a random time, like 2:37am, go to my mom's room and tell her I threw up or something and then she wouldn't wake me up in the morning for Seminary and school. It was a perfect formula. Luckily I still got really good grades or my mom probably wouldn't have let me get away with it. I'm positive she knew I was faking but I was a good (nerdy) kid so she let me do it. Again, my mom rocks!
