Daytime Gawk

I’ve had some time to watch TV on spring break. Not good. Probably the first time in 15 years I’ve watched daytime television. With apologies to Ben Franklin, add another one to the list of life’s guarantees: somebody will get blindsided on a daytime talk show. It’s interesting though why people go on these programs. What sane person would appear on a show taped in front of a studio audience without knowing why? Imagine the conversation leading to the fiasco:
“Honey, we’re going to New York to be on Maury Povich!”
"Never mind. You’ll find out when we get there."
“Um, okay. Are we going alone or is our pharmacist coming on this vacation too?”
It would be funny but it’s too pathetic. Okay, it's kind of funny.
