“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” — Michael Corleone
I was just telling my friends that I’m not going to watch American Idol this year. I’m tired of it. Plus, I get all wrapped up in one or two contestants, and then the most mediocre person always wins.
So, I’m through, I said.
Then I see a news report that they will be adding a fourth judge, Kara DioGuardi. Now I have to watch just to see what this new person is like. Then I’ll get all wrapped up in it again and I’ll start to favor one or two singers. Then I’ll start fantasizing that I’m young enough to audition myself and I’ll spend days dreaming about what song I would sing.
Why, oh why, can’t they just leave me alone?
