The other evening Husband and I had a very existential discussion… about The Jersey Shore. I’m betting that even if you don’t watch the show, you’ve heard about it.

I’ve watched it and it’s slightly entertaining. Don’t judge me.
“What could be existential about a reality TV show?” you ask. I mentioned to Husband that I feel bad for the cast. That’s right, I feel bad for people who get paid $10,000 every time an hour of their “dirty laundry” gets aired to the world. You couldn’t pay me enough for my reputation. Easy money isn’t always as easy as it looks. We all dream of hitting the big time but rarely consider the cost.
