Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable
Okay, I know what you're thinking "yeah, who isn't?" Well, the twist is, I can handle personal embarrassment, while it is slightly uncomfortable, I have coping mechanisms that are my "go-to" remedies. However, when I am watching television, those coping skills are stripped away, leaving me powerless. And Lucille Ball is the Kryptonite to my Super[wo]man.
She is funny, and she was so very likable, but UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES can I manage to sit and watch her embarrass herself in the most outlandish ways. I could sooner scrape my fingernails on a chalkboard for a half hour. It's silly and sad, really... to be so overcome. But I am. Like your drunken infomercial, the candy conveyor belt fiasco, lighting yourself on fire... Poor Lucy, you're like watching a train wreck in slow motion.
I love you Lucy, but I just can't bear you!
Your biggest [wannabe] fan,
