I was taking care of some personal hygiene matters while cool music played in the background. I totally felt like a character in The Secret Life Of Us.
I don't think it's the first time I've felt like a character in one of John Edwards' shows.
Then I wondered if I ever felt like a character on Home and Away.
I don't think I have.
I just sometimes WISH I was a character on that show.
I think the main reason is my teenage American life in 1988-1989 wasn't very delightful. So I sometimes think about how it would be nice to exchange that bit of my past with a fictional one on Summer Bay.
Also, they drink so many milkshakes on that show. I think on almost every episode someone orders one. It makes me hungry. Though I need to remember Australian milkshakes are different from American ones. Ours are thicker and have ice-cream. The ones we've encountered in Australia seem more like flavored milk.
I think John Edwards' shows are probably more realistic than Home and Away. So it's easier for me to have moments where I feel like I'm a character on that show. Plus, some of his shows use a lot of voice-over and I often have those going on in my head. Like when I'm dealing with personal hygiene issues.
