Naked And Afraid

Confession:  I got sucked into a "Naked and Afraid" marathon one weekend.


Are you familiar with this show on The Discovery Channel?!  I'm sure most people are, considering the fact that it is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!  Per discovery.com, the show "takes 'survival of the fittest' to the next level.  Each week, a new pair of complete and total strangers - one man and one woman - will find themselves stranded in and exposed to some of the world's most extreme weather environments.  Each duo will be left high and dry with no food, no water...and no clothes.  They must survive on their own for a full 21 days, with nothing but one personal item each and the knowledge that the only prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment."

What the what?!  It.  Is.  Crazy.  I just don't think you could pay me enough to spend 21 days out in the wild, IN THE NUDE.  That's like a bad camping trip.

So I admit it:  James and I watched several episodes together.  (It was actually kind of fun!  It was like we were having a really, really odd date night.)  And I couldn't help but notice the things I was thinking as I watched "nudey weirdos" spear fish in the Amazon . . . 

The Things I Think About While Watching Naked and Afraid with My Hubby:

--This popcorn is good.
--So are the cookies.
--I could not eat a sea urchin.
--I could not gut a caiman.
--I don't think that water is sanitary.
--Would you have to use a leaf to . . . you know . . . wipe?
--How do you spell machete without the use of autocorrect?
--These people are crazy.
--If I continue to watch this marathon, will I dream of naked butts all night?
--I wouldn't survive a day in the wilderness with nothing but a machete and my sad little boobies.
--James probably wouldn't survive a day either!
--James is cute.
--Is this a date?!  When you're busy being parents, you do what you can to spend time together.  Right?  Right?
--Oh my gosh!  Parenting young children is similar to being on a survival show!!!
--Right now, in this moment, I am "clothed" and "happy."
--Aw, bliss.
--Time for bed!
