POV and reality television

So when we were in So Cal this amazingly good-looking family rented the beach house next to ours. Like, they were movie star good-looking. And they spent a lot of time in skimpy swimwear talking about shopping and personal trainers and so forth. So I made the comment that it was like living next door to a reality television show--the Kardashians or something. Let me tell you we made merry with THAT idea.

And then one afternoon I looked at me, my sister-in-law, my daughter-in-law, and my niece sitting on the beach in our non-swimming suits as the four of us were knitting and I went, "And that family next door? They think they're living next door to the Duggars."

It's useful to have a shift in POV in life as well as in writing . . .

here you go--hate reality television, don't know who the duggars even are! I feel completely inadequate.

How does anyone knit on the beach? It's bad enough to get sand between toes let alone between stitches. :D

Renae, again.

The Duggards would be very comfortable vacationing in Gilbert, AZ. I miss you and that eclectic neighborhood. Lets have lunch in July, please.

You forgot to mention how good looking you all are too :)

It is so much easier to go through life completely unaware of my inadequacies. I think everyone secretly wishes they could be me....
