Confession: I am a total Kardashian Junkie. As a beloved ‘lady’ once said, SO WHAT? WHO CARES?! People love to hate on them, love to point out how they are just a manifestation of the troubled frame of mind our generation is in. I could care less. The show provides me with mindless entertainment in a world where my brain is constantly overwhelmed with external stressors, where the family’s candor cracks me up and honestly, makes me cry on the regular.

It was the norm.

Something about it used to kind of irk me, but I definitely fell victim to the “dad took forever shaving and I didn’t have timeeee” situation. Maybe it was the intimacy of the whole thing. You arrive at school with dripping wet hair and your fellow co-eds just knew that a mere 20 minutes ago you were naked. AHHH! If you think about it too much it can turn into a show up at school sans pants nightmare.
