The Sucks Series, A TV Show?

On paper, my life sounds so impressive. I just finished editing the latest book “Planning Your Wedding Sucks” (due out in Fall) and I’ve been meeting with producers and network executives trying to sell the Sucks series as a TV show. On one end, I have Mary Jo Eustace to host “Divorce Sucks,” (think “Supernanny” for the dumped and degraded), and on the other, I have the whole Sucks series where each show would focus on a different sucky subject (dating, dieting, unemployment, marriage etc.). But as exciting as all this may sound, the reality is all I am, is officially unemployed. Sure, the thought of selling a TV show is great, but I can only think of it as a hobby. Every so often I get to wear matching clothes and big girl shoes and head outside the comforts of the two mile radius of my home. I valet park and take the elevator up to the network floor where a nice lady asks me if she can get me anything to drink while I wait (oh, how long been since anyone cared about what I need!). I’m escorted to a conference room where important people actually listen to what I have to say without asking me to cut their meat or demand to watch iCarly before starting their homework. It’s like dress up for the stay-at-home mom crowd! After the meeting I turn back into a pumpkin as I race through rush hour traffic to pick up my kid who berates me for packing Danimals in her lunch when she’s told me countless times how much she hates Danimals. Then its off to take disgruntled kid to art class, home to walk the dog and start dinner, and a frantic search for the white button-down shirt for my daughter’s glee concert performance that night only to find that it’s bundled in a dirty ball in the back of her closet. True, trying to sell these TV shows may be just a hobbie, but oh, how an umemployed girl needs her hobbies. Keep your fingers crossed that one of these shows go so I can wear my big girl shoes every day and my 12 year old can pack her own damn lunch! And maybe even mine!

  2. I’m lighting a veladora and placing San Judas upside down so that you get to buy more big girl shoes! I feel your pain. No matter how much I try to pass the baton, my teenage sons just hand it back – dirty. Lately my mantra is ‘I’m your mother not your maid’. Loved Teenagers Suck!
