I don’t really like the term ‘guilty pleasures’ – I think if you like something, you shouldn’t have to hide it – but it fits with todays letter, so there. I’m going to use guilty pleasures to mean something that although you don’t hide, you wouldn’t mention on a first date or at a job interview.
Examples: one of my favourite meals is chicken kievs and smiley potato faces and I own Coyote Ugly on DVD and have watched it a few too many times. When home alone I like to listen to cheesy compilations from the nineties and not only did I recently buy a CD called ‘Ultimate Cheese’, but I know every single word to every single song and I danced around my kitchen wearing the boyfriend’s t-shirt and singing along to the Spice Girls. I invest too much time and energy in caring about soap storylines and I still have a slight obsession with Sylvanian Families. And I like Scooby Doo, even when the kid isn’t home.
What are your guilty pleasures?
