MY LIFE ON TELLY......



I watch the weirdest things on t.v. these days, and I guess if given the chance I'd watch t.v. all night long, and then the doggone timeshifting makes it difficult to cut off some shows because I tell myself it comes on again in about 2 hrs which is great because it is eating your cake and having it but on the other hand its like...........you know. I'm working on it, the good thing is that am great at multitasking, so I can at least respond to emails while I watch t.v. or iron or attempt to cook.
So there are two fantastic shows I catch on Mondays/wednesdays or sundays, I know what you are thinking and they are too many choices. So the one am watching right now, Secret diary of a call girl, I don't know who else loves the show, but it is an absolutely brilliant idea, a call girl living a normal life while doing her thing on the side and has insights on sex and what goes on when the doors close. I like that although she is a prositute, she is not a street walker, very middle class, hush hush sort of prostitution, and I like that a lot. I personally have nothing against prostitution, I just think that people should understand what it is they are doing, you know.
Anyways, so today's episode of SDCG (yes I can abb.) Belle the call girl had given up prostituting for love but the boyfriend still had his doubts, so he managed to get her pimp to talk her into one last gig, which turned out to be her boyfriend in the hotel room. I am going to watch it again on Wednesday just to make sure I was not imagining things, I kind of thought that it would be him with the way her pimp was pressuring...nah I lie, I didn't have the faintest idea but I sure was surprised.
And that episode made me wonder, if this thing called love is all 1 Corinthians 13 says it is, if it trully is, then wouldn't it persevere, hope and not die when the object of one's love is a prostitute. I mean people love doctoring, and folks love banking and some even spend their lunch breaks polishing their bosses you know what, and we file that under "office work" but the moment money starts exchanging hands for sexual favors it suddenly is bad. I mean sure there are moral issues to consider, but if you fall in love with a prostitute, follow 1 Corinthians 13 and accept her for who she is....
I once heard of a couple, happily married for like 10 years, third/forth year into the marriage, the lady had a stroke and it affected the part of her brain that could discern proper sexual etiquette, so she comes out of the stroke and is a total nymph, she stops people on the road and just like jumps them. And through it all her husband stayed with her, and when he couldn't look the other way anymore, he started being very wary, she wasn't allowed to leave the house, men weren't allowed to visit, that sort of thing, because in her head whenever she had a sexual urge that most people could brush off or plan to fulfil at a more appropriate time, her body automatically looks to satisfy the urge.
I was listening to their story and marvelled at the man's strength, staying with his wife like that, that is what they call love and I think they were able to "mend" the part of the brain for the lady and though it definitely affected the relationship it made them stronger.
Which brings me to my other new favorite HBO series United States of Tara, based on Tara who has multiple personalities that manifest themselves at odd times, one of these personalities happens to be a man and the interesting thing about this is that Tara is happily married with two children, her husband helps her through the changes and holds down the house whenever she is somebody else. That my people if it really exists is what we call LOVE, Corinthians style.

I dont watch SDCG or Tara but thats a good point you bring up. How do we totally forget someone's past and trust them 100%? I mean, 1st Corinth 13 is the ideal but if only we could all live like because that is unfortunately not the case with couples. There are couples out there, like the couples you mentioned who live 1st corinth 13 and that is v. admirable when people are able to stand thru the better and the worse.
