I just got home from my book club. We call it a book club, but if truth be told, we are just bunch of good friends who figured out that we can get together once a month, drink wine, and talk about the books we want to read.
Ergo: We are a book club. Only two people had read the book “The 19th Wife,” about Brigham Young’s 19th wife, who defected and made it her life’s mission to expose the strange practices of Mr. Young and his philosophy.
I lost interest before the hostess even began her review. I turned to Ginger who sat next to me and we discussed how the weather was going to affect our perennials.
Suddenly, we were reviewing what we watch on television, and everyone weighed in on reality television. I was shocked out of my mind to learn that Ginger Jones and Ginger DeWeese both watch Swamp People.
Listen, these are the two most intelligent and thoughtful people in our club. AND THEY WATCH SWAMP PEOPLE! I vaguely remember my friend Norma in West Point telling me they watched that show.
I’m missing something here. I was ready to write the History Channel and berate them for carrying Swamp People. I’m withholding judgement until I actually see it.
