I haven’t been watching a lot of tv lately, nope, not even Oprah. The only show I make time for is Modern Family. But the past 2 nights I have been watching Oprah and last night’s show was about her and her adventures with her best friend Gayle. In the audience were women with their own best friends.
I was chiding myself for not trying to get in the show with my own bestie. After all, there was a period in our life where Oprah was a regular part of our conversation. This was even back then we knew that I would end up in Chicago, where Oprah’s studio is. I chided myself more when a voice-over announced that at the end of the program a surprise awaits the audience of besties.
Then it came, it was a 3 days 2 nights stay at the “number one spa” in the US, Miravel located in Tucson, Arizona. Ngek. What a let down. I can understand 1 day of pampering but being holed up for 3 days in a resort never mind if it includes the works, food, use of facilities, zipline, golf, trail rides. Boring. A trip to Vegas or Mexico would be more appealing to me. I’ve watched a lot of Oprah shows where her give-aways would make me say, “gee I wish I was there,” but this wasn’t one of them. If I know my bestie well enough I think this isn’t her thing too.
