I simply should not be left alone with the remote control.
Terrible, irreparable things happen when I am left to my own devices.
For example, that time this past weekend when I thought binge-watching the entire Making a Murderer series in one sitting would be a grand idea………………………….
By the end of it, I was paralyzed with fear. I practically squeezed the stuffing out of the throw pillow I was clinging to. I could not move from the couch. Perhaps because my butt had sunk so far into one little crevice that the couch started to believe I was a part of it so it started to form around me, but that’s beside the point. Why didn’t anyone tell me how terrifying this show is?! I really thought I could handle real-life crime/mystery drama, you know? Like, I thought I was strong enough.
I’m learning I’m more of a ~fiction~ girl.
