Willing to die…
Recently I was stalking the wall of the Facebook page of a certain TV show. I’m not going to tell you what show it is because I don’t want you to laugh at me… or judge me. ;]
Why was I stalking the Facebook wall, you ask? Oh, because I wanted to know what had happened in the previous night’s episode. See, I don’t watch the episodes on TV as they are released – mainly because I don’t like waiting another whole week to see the next episode. So I wait until the season is available on DVD, buy it, and watch them all within like a week.
As I stalked the page and read random wallposts and comments by hundreds of people I’ve never met before in my life, I came across one comment that really concerned me.
“Omg i love this shoew i will die for it.it iz my favorite”
Yes, I was concerned because of her spelling skills; and yes, I was concerned because of her use of punctuation marks (or lack thereof on both accounts). But what really concerned me was the fact that she just admitted in front of 3.7+ million people connected on this page that she would die for a TV show.
Now, I enjoy this show; really, I do. But I don’t enjoy it enough to DIE for it. I wouldn’t give my life to keep it airing. I wouldn’t sacrifice myself so the creators of said show would keep writing new seasons.
Either this girl has a serious problem, or she really loves the show that much. Oh, did I mention she was like 12? That might have something to do with it. ehh…
But it got me thinking… what do I love enough to die for? What means so much to me that I would be willing to give my life for it? That’s a pretty sobering question…
What are you willing to die for?
Perhaps a friend or two. (maybe) ;]
What about you? Are there any TV shows you’d die for? (jk)
What are some of the things you’d be willing to give your life for?
