Okay, there is something that I haven’t wanted to admit to anyone. Only my family knows about this. It is my dark secret and I don’t know how to stop! I can’t stop watching ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover show and every time I watch it I cry like a little baby! I mean, I just sob! The families are always so deserving and they have been through so much and the sound bytes they have are the most heart-wrenching stuff you will ever hear! I don’t cry very often and I really am not a cry baby, but this show repeatedly brings me to tears. I am not the only one! My mom and I sit in the family room and watch it sobbing together! And, even though my dad tries to hide it, I can see him crying too! I don’t know how people can watch that show without crying buckets of tears!!! Do the producers know how much they make us cry???
It is pretty hilarious, but I still have no idea why I can’t stop it. I try not to cry. I’m like “this is only a TV show! I don’t even know these people!” But it doesn’t matter, because 2 minutes into the TV show I’ll be sobbing! If you don’t know what the show is, basically they take a family that is in complete need of a new house. They tear down their old house and rebuild a new 100 times more fabulous house in its position! They often donate mortgages, cars and large sums of money to people as well.
It is just amazing, and I know I’m a total sucker, but this show just gets me every time!
