i patiently waited for my sister in law to join us for a day of painting with the kids at Color Me Mine during Christmas break. She sent her son in and followed a little after. I figured just another day in the life of a nursing mom but then she dropped the most delightful bomb ever.
“do you listen to serial?” she said. “what?” was my basic response. then she went on to tell me about the podcast, Serial from The American Life and how its gripping nature will literally prevent you from getting out of your car until the episode is finished. I downloaded the podcast the next week and found myself, sitting in the car, outside of Target, listening and not moving.
I texted her everyday as I devoured the podcast. things like.
“who did it?”
“do you think he is a sociopath?”
“i am not sure why i am obsessed but i think it is the narrator’s voice.”
then sadly it ended. just like when finishing Harry Potter or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, i mourned Serial. I wanted to reach for it and listen again. i kept checking my phone to see if maybe just maybe i missed an episode and could listen again. I thought about the characters, who are in fact not characters but real live people, dealing with a real live murder investigation and trial. I did that really annoying thing where you try to talk to people about it that don’t listen and explain it’s brilliance.
This week i found a new list for those of us addicted to Serial to listen to until Serial comes back on. Check it out over here on the Coveteur. Excuse me now while i sit in my car.
This Friday, I just can’t stop listening to these podcasts.
what else can i not stop this week? i can’t stop wearing these heels. they are high but the heel is blocky enough that i have worn them three times this week alone. perfect for a night with the girls and some meetings. and they are to die for in tan also! get them. you won’t regret it.
paired with this pleated leather midi skirt and you are gonna be reeeal happy.
