I confess, I've gotten totally into The Biggest Loser. To be perfectly honest, I'm always kind of bored for the first hour and 50 minutes but I absolutely love the transformation moment. Dropping that kind of weight is phenomenal. I mean, some of them lose entire me's and I find that incredible.
So last night we had our community life group so I didn't watch it. This afternoon I wanted to relax on the couch, baby on lap, and fast forward through the episode on DVR. But, alas, I have a toddler. Usually he's somewhat interested in The Biggest Loser so I figured I'd give it a shot.
When he quickly lost interest the following conversation took place.
Garrett: I want a tookie.
Me: (pause) If I give you a cookie will you sit on the couch and watch Biggest Loser with me?
No sooner had it come out of my mouth that I realized there was not a single redeeming quality about that sentence. Maybe I can sign the kid up for some diabetes while I'm at it.
