Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

The Kleenex commercials at Christmas? "Kleenex says, 'Bless You'"? Get me every time.

SCENE
Living room in Cat's home. The room is dark and sparsely furnished. Boxes are strewn about, half-packed. The television is on, its bright glow the only light illuminating the room.

[TGIM discovered sprawled across a couch. CAT is lounging on the floor, leaning against couch. The sound of a credit card commercial set to Five For Fighting's "100 Years" is heard wafting from the television.]

TELEVISION: [set against montage of life milestones]
'I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind
I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life...'

CAT: [riveted to tv screen] Man oh man. I hate PMS.

TGIM: [without looking] You're crying, aren't you.

CAT: [wiping away tear] Shut up.

Sue cries at commercials all of the time. Hallmark commercials are the WORST!

Oh, geez. Someone just HAD to go and bring up HALLMARK commercials. The one where the little boy hangs back in the classroom, after the class is dismissed, and he gives the teacher a card, and he...and he says...*sniff*...he says, "Do you want me to read it to you?" And then...*sniff*...and then he DOES, and he's...and he's THANKING her for helping him learn to read...and it's JUST. SO. BEAUTIFUL. ::weeping::

I obviously need to watch more TV. I have NEVER seen either of those commercials. But of course, there are movies that get me every time....Armageddon, "Daddy, no..."
OMG, I'm bawling! Dirty Dancing, "Nobody puts baby in a corner" *tear* OMG on Braveheart, when they kill his wife????? But really, I haven't seen those ads, but I feel your pain, girl.
