I’ve never watched soap operas on a regular basis. Back in the 80s, I remember the big hoopla over Luke & Laura’s wedding. In the 90s, while I was in Germany and only had one TV station on the base to choose from (I’ve heard they have more now), I watched the soaps from time to time – but stopped when I came back to the states.
So now it is time to come clean. I’ve become hooked to Days of Our Lives.
I watched the first episode so I could mock it. Sami kept talking out loud to herself. Belle was married to one man but in love with another.
A woman Marlena was in a coma. (There are always people in a coma on soaps. What is up with that?) But then the next day I wondered what had happened. By day three, I was tuning in to find out.
I know names of characters. I’m starting to figure out who is related to who, but in Salem it seems like everyone is related to everyone. It is crazy. And I’m hooked.
Someone help me. After 2:00. Right now, my soap is on. (I’m hanging my head in shame for saying that. I really am.)
