If you know me well, you know that I have little interest in books, movies, or TV. I am pretty much the most boring person you will ever meet. But once in a blue moon something comes around that I simply can’t ignore. This time around it’s My Strange Addiction on TLC. This show is so good it defies explanation, so I will just introduce you to a couple of my favorite characters.
Meet Kesha. No, not Ke$ha – just Kesha. And no, that’s not a flour tortilla she’s eating. Kesha is addicted to eating toilet paper.
She also says she loves taking TP with her to the movies.
<-- Here is Kesha packing up her bag to go catch a matinee showing of True Grit.
Now meet Adele. Adele has been eating couch cushions since she was 10 years old. She unzips the pillows and rips off bite-sized pieces to snack on throughout the day. Supposedly, the darker and more yellow the foam is, the more flavor it has (gross?). According to the show, she has ingested about 200 lbs. of cushion, which in furniture terms amounts to seven full couches and two chairs.
<-- Here is Adele working on couch #8. So that brings me to the obvious question: If you had to give up food for either toilet paper or couch cushion, which would you choose? Just some food for thought for the coming week...
