Bodice Ripping, say CHEESE!
So...Friday school was closed due to the winter storm. The kids were playing and I was puttering around, getting things straightened up.
I turned on the local news to see WHERE the snow was because it WASN'T in Slidell!
The news was over and The Bold and The Beautiful came on. I don't watch soaps anymore. I used to watch Y & R and when I was in college I watched AMC, GH and OLTL.
It caught my attention because Don Diamont was on the show...he was killed off on Y & R. I remember when he was the POOL boy...or gardener or something.
Anyhoo, he is apparently a 'bad boy' on B & B now and I was trying to figure out his new look with all the facial hair. He was having a conversation with some girl who was trying to seduce him.
The phone rings and it is Dean so we talk for about 15 minutes.
I get up to turn the tv off and then Leo barfs 6 times (I counted) and I had to clean it up. Leo is REALLY sick...please send him some good thoughts.
Anyhoo, while cleaning up cat barf, I am hearing conversation ...him telling the girl she is getting in over her head. How he is a MAN, not a little boy, etc. etc. I start cracking up because it is so flippin CHEESEY. I mean, do guys really talk like that? LOL.
I leave to get a towel (it was a LOT of barf) and when I come back in, I see Brad turned Bad Boy...oh yeah, his name is Dollar Bill....I mean, how MUCH did they pay him to call him that? HAH!
Okay, so he walks over to this girl and RIPS her blouse open....you know...the way your HUSBAND does every time he sees you, right?
I am HOWLING. The kids are like, what is so funny? I guess I just missed the point entirely.
I mean, the FIRST thing I could think of is " how much did that blouse cost?" I mean, REALLY. Blouses are expensive...at least good ones. Did he rip the blouse to hear the buttons pop? Or just for effect? Did the camera guys laugh out LOUD when the blouse ripped?
I mean, these folks on soap operas are supposed to be loaded, right? So, let's just say that particular blouse cost 200 bucks or so. Would you REALLY be into it if some guy just RIPPED a 200 dollar blouse because he was...ahem...REALLY attracted to you. And what happens to all those buttons?
Just wondering...that's all. So, tune in next week for Part 2. because I'm going to tell you the about the last time I recall having a bodice 'ripped...' And then, maybe for fun, Dean and I can put on cheap shirts and see how hard it is to actually RIP a 'bodice'....hee hee......
