Almost Oops

Last night I came thisclose to sending my mom a text asking if she was going to be ok with the American Idol results. She is slightly in the Adam Lambert camp. By "slightly" I mean that she called me more than once this season in disbelief that I wasn't watching American Idol and made me promise to spend hours on the internet watching all the youtube videos with Adam Lambert in them. So maybe more than slightly.

Ok, so I get my text all written out expressing my concern for her well-being after the Adam loss and just before I press send I realize that even though the internet told me who won (more like forced it down my throat), the show would not finish airing in California for another 20 minutes.

Disaster averted.

Some people have very specific priorities. For example: I called my parents last night to get an update on the fire situation since my grandparents were under mandatory evacuation and my parents were under an evacuation advisory. They couldn't talk though because American Idol was on.

And totally unrelated, I went to the library to pick up a book that I had on hold and the librarian says, "Only one this time?" Ok, I guess I read a lot.
