How American Idol is Like High School

Backstory: 1) I go to my mom’s every week for reality TV Tuesday, lately featuring ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and ‘American Idol.’ 2) My mom’s mental list of times she got ripped off by friends/family members/arch rivals dates back to early childhood, with many highlights from her high school heyday.

What do you think of Shawn? Gilles should have won, of course. That seems to be an omen for Adam – underdog Kris will win. Meredith Viera totally said the whole “common knowledge” thing this morning. “Adam is so talented but I just love Kris, he’s so sweet, blah, blah, blah!” It’s that kind of thinking that lost me homecoming queen and Best All Around!

Mom: Did you watch ‘Notorious’ yet?
Me: Nope, not yet.
Mom: Just checking…watching Little Kim on dancing with the stars reminded me…she used to hump Biggy!! Lol

mom: Do I have to text you in the morning?
me: Sure, around nine.
mom: Ok. Forgot to tell you…at the end of Mark Ballas’ Lindy he has a boner.
me: haha, I’ll have to look that up…
mom: Yup. Night, I love you.

Love, Mom
