I am bad at YouTube

Last night my son recommended* I check out this video on YouTube, so I fired up the laptop and showed The Chef and we laughed and laughed and laughed.

And then I, who was in charge of the laptop because it was on my lap, started clicking on a couple of other funny videos that weren't as funny. And then I said, "What should I look up now?" because I was enjoying our cozy couch time.*** 

Then I actually said, "What else do they have?" because I am so very cool.

I clicked on a few things and then watched an Adele video because we saw her on the Grammy's**** and I liked her a lot.*****

And then I threw up my hands. "I don't know what else to look at," I said.

"You're not very good at this, are you?" he asked.

I admit I'm not. Just like I get bored on the internet. And shopping. I go in, get what I want, and then leave. Want to see a funny Louis C.K. bit? Open it, watch, laugh hysterically, move on. Want to check my amazon sales? In and out baby, with an announcement of the day's number. Need a new pair of yoga pants?  Hello Target, how are you doing and gotta go!

I'm afraid of learning to like YouTube stuff, or the mighty internets for that matter. I can waste plenty of time on a good day without that kind of distraction. I have books to write! And Mary Kay sales to make! And TV to watch!****** And... and... and...

So, sorry, YouTube. I will not be your friend. I'm sure there's someone else out there who will pay attention to you.

*Ha ha ha. In some families, the recommend the newest literary work by Sir Stuffypants or seeing the latest pretentious documentary by Baron von Betterthanyou.  We recommend videos of cats playing Fruit Ninja.**

**Fruit Ninja is a really fun game!

***I'm such a GIRL sometimes. Ugh.

****Um, that Nicki Minaj girl? SO not a fan.

*****You have to remember that I don't actually listen to music. Ever. (Except when The Chef is driving.) Audiobooks in the car and on my iPod. Always. And I mean ALWAYS.

******You're thinking I should say "And papers to grade!" but you'd be wrong. I don't bring that work home.
