Reality TV

So we are sitting, watching American Idol, when I started singing "Chain of Fools" by Aretha. You know the one..."Chain Chain Chain, Chain of fools", when I look over to Lauren and I say,

"You know what? I am going to audition for the next American Idol."

She smiles and says to me, dead serious, "They are auditioning for the Biggest Loser at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville you should try that."

"Chain, chain chai-." I stopped singing and shook my head to make sure I heard what she was suggesting. "Did you just..were you suggesting...?"

She laughed a devilish laugh and said, "Put that in your little Blog and smoke it. "

That is hysterical. In my family, those little exchanges are a sign of true love.

I heart Lauren.

(And oddly enough, I use that pipe line all the time. We should totally hang, Lauren and I. Maybe do yoga or something.) ;)

Man, that's one woman I don't think any of us want to cross.

My FAVORITE part of last night's show was Simon's comment to the Paula and Randy DVD prodigy: "Is your DVD player running slow?"

Tammy said...

Lauren cracks me up.

Circus Kelli said...

You can only audition for Idol if you wear a sparkly tube top, mini skirt and go-go boots. You know, your nicer clothes for job interviews and stuff.

Hope you don't mind but I shamelessly plugged you in my blog.

you wife is killer.

Lowa said...

is she always this way or is it just because she is preggers???

From the sounds of it, she is totally cool!

kimmyk said...

Lauren rocks!

They're doing auditions here today for TBL.

I think she was secretly complimenting you...The Biggest Loser chnages peoples' lives for the better...anyone who gets on that show loses weight and makes a better life for themself...so...maybe she was just trying to protect you from self depricating singing in front of America and encouraging heart healthiness instead...

Or maybe you just sucked :)

No matter how bad you sound Wm, you have to sound better than most of the ones that they have been showing on Amer. Idol....lol
My granddaughter took singing lessons from a girl that tried out for Amer. Idol.....she is a wonderful singer and they said she wasn't what they were looking for.... don't you just wonder, what are they looking for....Wm Hung.......?????

Stacie said...

She is THE BEST!! And I totally say put that in your pipe/whatever fits, and smoke it! Lauren...you are one cool cookie! Stacie

Meow said...

She is wonderful ... you keep her, won't you !!! Have a great day, Meow

Susie said...

Thank you Lauren. I think that's Karma for asking Santa to give me the past two seasons worth of Biggest Loser dvds. I know what you meant... but dude... you don't give those to a woman.

eclectic said...

**applause** Ha! Lauren cracks me up!!

Christine said...

Your wife is the bomb.

Mainline Mom said...

She's the best. My husband turned to me last night and suggested I should audition for American Idol. It suddenly dawned on me that I'm too old for the cutoff. That was painful.

Hänni said...

hehe and you did put it in your little blog, didn't you?

SO seriously, if you're an Idol fan, why haven't you entered my contest?

Peanutt said...

HAHAHA. That is funny. But the "bad" singers are what makes A.I. entertaining......
