sick and wrong

I just have to say, there is something definitely crazy about our society when my grandparents are bragging to everyone within earshot because they are friends with David Archuleta's voice coach. "Who is that?" you may ask. If you do ask that seriously, I commend you for remaining untainted by the insane asylum called American Idol.

For the rest of you, I continue my story. We were staying with my parents/grandparents for a couple of weeks while we closed on our home. During this time, my grandparents regularly drifted off to bed by about 8 p.m. (on a late night). But one magical Wednesday, they were up later than WE were (with their friends no less) watching the Idol. Not only were they cheering and booing, but they were critiquing like the best of 'em. I was in the other room doing school work, but it was hilarious to hear a side of them I never thought possible.

I may not be an Idol fan, but I now appreciate the fact that it brings entertainment to all of America - even my funny grandparents.

I can't believe that you are mocking (and claim to not be a part of) something so fundamentaly American. People singing, others critisizing and the rest of us gathering to eagrly watch while eating, laughing critisizing and building lasting memories!
