So you know my favorite show right now is The Biggest Loser, and we record it so we can watch it when it’s convenient. Blaine could care less about the show, but we were having quality family time tonight and all watching together, Blaine included. Well, except for Kendrie, who is in bed with a sore throat and a fever of 101 …. Guess letting her spend the night last weekend with her cousin, who had just been diagnosed with strep, wasn’t such a stroke of genius on my part.
First they showed a re-cap of last week when Mark got voted off and he was crying, then they showed his brother Jay crying because he was so sad to see Mark go. Then Dan started crying when was overwhelmed, realizing how much weight he has lost and how much physical progress he has made, then Bernie started crying when he was talking to his family about supporting him in his weight-loss goals.
This is the following conversation that took place, which sort of makes Blaine sound like a caveman, but which made me giggle, so I’m going to share:
Blaine: Oh Geez, is there another one crying? There’s too much crying on this show.
Kristie: Blaine, think about it. These people have worked so hard to achieve their goals, and what they've accomplished is so huge, I’m sure they’re simply overcome at times.
Blaine: I don’t care. They’re crying like little girls.
Kristie: Blaine! That guy lost one hundred pounds … ONE HUNDRED POUNDS! Don’t you think that entitles him to shed a few tears of joy??
Blaine: I don’t care --- Was it a hundred pounds of testosterone he lost?? Because that’s the only thing that would explain all the damn crying.
