Why I Don't Watch Daytime TV

I turned on Dr. Phil yesterday while Mary Grace was at school and I was home with Jack and Claire.  I don't know why.  I almost never watch television.  I wasn't even really paying attention to it, and I couldn't tell you what the topic was.  I just wanted some noise, I guess.

Anyway, so Dr. Phil throws to a commercial for this:

...and Claire, who was sitting at the kitchen table coloring and wasn't even supposed to be paying attention said, "You should get some of that Mommy."

"What?"  I asked.

"For your eyes," she said, as she pointed to the area below her own eyes.  Where the bags under my eyes have grown their own bags.

"No," I said, (I did not say, "No, smartass," though I wanted to) "I need your brother and your sister to sleep."

This, my friends, is why I almost never turn on daytime TV.
