A Stunning Admission Involving Sequins and White Pants

Wednesday, October 22, 2008 | Labels: , , | |

I like to think that we all have our little secrets that we'd rather the whole world not know. I have one too, and I'm about to tell it to you. Warning - there may be cringing and most certainly there will be calls for me to turn in my man-card. So here it is...
Several years ago the Mrs. HTF roped me into watching some bizarre show where semi-celebrities did ballroom dancing with real-life professional dancers, competing for a big glass ball. By now you know the show - yes, I am a part-time fan of Dancing with the Stars. I try to justify it by rooting for manly athlete types like Emmett Smith and Jason Taylor. There have been multiple Mormons on there, so I reconcile that it's just me supporting my "people." But I must now admit - those are just examples of my playing with my own mind. I'm a fan.
So there it is - perhaps not the darkest secret you've ever heard, but nonetheless, I'm feeling a little liberated, and quite embarrassed. I haven't watched this season, but I'm home now visiting the family, so hopefully my dear wife will get me up to speed. Of course I will feign disinterest . . . until the music starts.
In honor of my admission and tipping my fedora to my frequent political blogs, I leave you with this (sent to me by my good friend William . . . if only it were so):

    Wow Scott, I had no idea. I think I may have deleted some shows off the DVR already, but I'll catch you up to speed. You're still the man!

    That picture made me laugh so hard!

    Who am I to judge what anyone else watches? My standards for entertainment are way low. I think that the WB/UPN/CW planted some device in my head & they only program stuff I like (horrible teen shows & fashion reality shows).

    I really think I'm on a 10 minute taped delay from the rest of the world. I just saw that you are home visiting. Yay for you guys!

    I'm okay with the dancing/sequins, it's the Boyz-2-Men I find scary :)

    The post title had me worried - couldn't really picture you in white pants and sequins - whew!
