Today, I find myself at a major crossroad in my life. We are all faced with them from time to time. Those moments when we are presented with conflicting options and must choose the road we feel is right... "What is the source of my dilemma," you might ask? Take a look for yourself...
Why, yes! That is a Justin Bieber/Rascal Flatts single! Now WTF am I supposed to do with that?!? On the one hand, in my humble opinion, Rascal Flatts is freaking awesome and as far as I'm concerned, can do no wrong when it comes to making music. They could sing Ernie's Rubber Duckie song from Sesame Street, and I'd totally melt. On the other hand, there's that whole Justin Bieber thing that I'd have to live down if I ever publicly admit that I like this song. So what is a 36-year-old woman to do when faced with a dilemma of this magnitude? Fine! I'll own it! I like this song!!! I'll just chalk it up as a "guilty pleasure" and everyone can just accept it for what it is.
I suppose while I'm fessing up to guilty pleasures, I might as well own up to a few more. If I'm going to be mocked by my peers, I might as well give them some genuine ammunition. ;-)
Mock away if you must!!! But just remember that one day, I might sneak up on you while you're busting out your best "Macarena" moves or belting out your favorite Air Supply song in the shower (Why, yes... I do own Air Supply's Greatest Hits ;-P)... They're called "guilty pleasures," and we all have them. I'm just brave enough to own up to mine on the World Wide Web for all to see. :-)
