I’ve come to realize I am a hypocrite.
I wrote a post awhile back about how some tv watchers test me like a leper because of the fact that I barely watch tv, when I realized based on the many conversations that I’ve had with my sister via facetime video chat that I’m totally a judgmental hypocrite because I get all snooty at the amount of TV my husband, sister and Father watch.
But I can’t help it!!!
Just today I was talking to my sister Richelle about, jeez you watch too much TV when I know for a fact she reads plenty and she is actually way more productive of a person all around then I am. She is always so motivated to do things and I am so unabashedly lazy with everything except reading, blogging, and my husband and son and sometimes my arts/crafts. I wish I had half the gusto she has. But I can’t help this insanely annoyed almost angry even reaction I get when I see my husband or her or my Dad watching TV!
I can’t usually go a day without reading and I just have to accept that for non readers it’s TV they don’t go a day without. Fair is fair. (This is totally prompting me to write another post now as well on whether readers are a dying breed!)
Ultimately I can’t fault them for watching TV, it’s an entertainment hobby just like my reading is an entertainment hobby. But I instantly have this gut thought of “oh they could be doing something better with their time, like reading a book.” Lol so that is exactly how I’m a hypocrite because I know non book readers probably think something similar of me.
