A few of my favorites are:
I usually will stand in the longest line at the grocery store, just so I can browse the latest celebrity gossip and not have to actually buy the magazine (is that considered shoplifting?) The poor check-out lady will say "Ma'am, I am open on aisle 3" and I will look at her and say "No thank you...I am fine in this long line!"
Thank God for all the small toys at Target's check-out lanes. While most parents hate when their kids kneel down to look at everything, while asking "can I have this?"...I secretly love those aisle toys, as they buy me a little extra peace and quiet while I find out who has had botox injections in Hollywood!
When I was a flight attendant, there was nothing better than finding leftover celebrity magazines in the seat-back pockets. During my flights I would make mental notes of the seat numbers of those reading the latest tabloids! As I was saying "buh-bye" to all the passengers, I would think about rushing back to their seat in hopes of striking gossip gold! To this day, I usually will buy every single tabloid before my flight, and after I have read every last page, I will politely hand over my magazines to a deserving flight attendant. Their faces light up and the smile they get is enough to warm my heart. I call it *Layover Love! (imagine the flight attendant laying in her hotel bed reading her magazines on the layover!)
*Please make a note and give a little of this "love" on your next flight!
Do you notice the three magazines above? Do you see the similarities? That is right, they all have to do with how celebrities look in their swimwear. Of course, I purchase these magazines because:
- I want to see how they keep those amazing bodies...Just in case one day I too can have a personal trainer come to my house, while my nanny watches the kids, and the personal chef fixes my healthy meals!
- I want to see what a "celebrity" post-baby body looks like...so I can feel even worse about my "real" post-baby body!
- I want to see that celebrities are like me, and have
Ok...why do I buy these magazines again?
Do you want to know where I like to read my tabloids?
- On the beach
- In the bathtub
- At the gym
- In the bookstore
- On a plane
- In the grocery store line
- At the library
I will read tabloids here and there, I will read them ANYWHERE!
