Forced DIY, jello legs and wicked proposition
So in between tending to painting, gluing, wiping, sealing and such all day, I had some sad conversations with people about dementia and health issues and I swear I'm beginning to think you just scrape by as long as you can until your body decides to turn against you. I used to think the goal was to get to old age and you just had typical small things you associate with aging and then ideally, you go in your sleep. It seems that's a grand dream anymore. Sigh.
When the Mr got home, it was time to workout. Oh my Lord, halfway through my legs felt like jello! By the end, I was just glad I didn't have to army crawl up the stairs. I did have to sit for a few minutes to collect my strength before getting to dinner.
Orange BBQ chicken, potato wedges (a rare treat!) and green beans. I was so full when it was done but I could feel my body pulling the energy from it.
The Mr had to work OT from home so I took the opportunity to watch a show called Wicked Deal or something like that. I guess some dude asks you to do embarrassing or kind of mean situations involving your friends and/or family. You have the opportunity to earn $50K as long as you don't blow it and they catch on to the lie. So the couple invited their friends over and wanted to show them products from the (fake) lingerie store they were going to open. So they came out in skimpy and embarrassing outfits. Then after 24 hours, you can break the news to the people. They earned $15K for keeping their mouths shut and the friends thought it was funny. Then the next one was they could earn $35K if they convinced the guy's family (God fearing, old school values, younger brother looks up to him) that he fathered a baby from a one night stand and the baby mama is going to live with them after her mom died and she had nowhere else to turn. Oh, did I mention it was Mother's Day? They went through with it, met the baby mama, saw pics of the baby and when the actress left, the mom cried. Then the next day, they came clean and papa was NOT happy and said it was disgraceful. Mom was relieved but disappointed he would lie for money. It was an interesting show, that's for sure. I don't know if I'd want to watch that regularly though and cringe the whole hour.
Would you deceive your family and friends for the potential of $50,000?
