Fishy Shame

I've hit a lot of lows in my life. A lot. There were the twilight books I read. And movies I watched. There was the time I made Nick staple the last fifty or so pages of a book to the back cover so that I couldn't peak ahead, then I pried the staples out to peak and restapled so he wouldn't know. (Spoiler alert- he couldn't care less.) There was the time I gained seventy pounds when I was pregnant. Four times. There was the time (last week) when I walked in to the kitchen to find Daisy coloring and singing allll the words to White Walls.

But now I've hit a new low. An ALL TIME low. At least I hope I never sink lower. I probably will.

This morning, I shouted at Ava not to start the next episode of a show bc I needed to start getting the day ready. I promised we'd watch it- and the next one, we only have two left- after school. And I was dead serious- I'd be devastated if she watched without me and I can't bear to wait more than the seven hours it'll take her to get home to find out what happens next.


The show?
Mako Mermaids.

I'm so ashamed. So, so ashamed. It is SO STUPID. It is a show FOR CHILDREN.

But what can I say? Nothing, bc I'm too embarrassed. I actually considered warning the final two while she's at school and then pretending I didn't, but Netflix puts a check mark next to the ones you watch and she'll definitely notice.

Maybe I could buy it on iTunes?!?! Then she'd never know!!!

I'm so ashamed. And so excited to find out if they get Zac's powers. Will the pod come back? Will they let the girls in? What's Rita gonna do? Will Lila's crazy idea of letting Zac join the pod even make it to the mermaid council? How will we resolve the fact that Zac has a girlfriend but he's obviously destined to be with Lila? Can Cam get killed on a children's show?

I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!

But don't tell anyone.

Linking up with Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop with my take on the prompt FISHY. 







PS While hunting down the pic for this shameful post, I have discovered that there are THREE SEASONS of this show.  It's not looking good for my pride yall.  Not looking good at all.

  1. Hahaha! That is so funny. Why do we get sucked into the stupid shows. But my question is...is that a guy mermaid...merman? My interest is piqued. Maybe I can watch once all my kids go to bed. Thank you!!

    1. They do call him a merman. And, to add another interesting fact, they haven't seen or heard of a merman in a thousand years. There was a big war, it's a whole thing. So how exactly are little new mermaids created and born?!?!

  2. That's too funny! Never heard of the show, but it sounds...ummm...silly. But I'm one to talk, I watch some pretty pointless stuff too. A few years ago there was a reality show on (can't remember the name of it) where they took a bunch of rich spoiled girls (nominated by their families) and put them all in a house and took away all their crap and made them work. My brother and I loved it! There was something satisfying in watching them get down and dirty like the rest of us. It only lasted 2 seasons, that's how stupid it was.

    1. I remember that show!!! I never got into reality TV and I think that's probably a good thing. There's only so many hours in a day...and there's three seasons of Mako Mermaids to get thru!! ;)

    1. Of course I did!!! And can I be upset for a few minutes that for season two, two of the three main girls left to do God knows what and they were replaced by two other nearly identical girls that I can't stand?!?! Although that doesn't stop me from obsessively watching...#soashamed
