I'm quite a serious person, and I work hard. One does not get a Ph.D. in engineering unless one works hard or is a genius, and I am not a genius.
Anyway, I realized in the last couple of years that I probably wasn't relaxing and enjoying life quite as much as I should. It is good to be hard working but it is also good to rest and take pleasure in life's little and big blessings.
I'll discuss big blessings at another time. Right now, a little blessing. Total Wipeout.
It's a TV show on Amazon Prime which involves competitors trying to make it through a challenging obstacle course; when they fail, and the usually do, they fall into mud pits or into pools of water. There is a female host who stands around the course making snide comments, and a male host in a comfortable studio who is sarcastic and snarky.
It. Is. Hilarious. It is family bonding as the kids and I sit around chortling over brave souls falling into mud.
I like Total Wipeout.
