Daily Prompt – Relish
Simple Definition of relish
: enjoyment of or delight in something
: a feeling of liking something
I seldom watch television unless I have some hand work that makes it worth my while to sit still; i.e., binding a quilt, crocheting an afghan, stitching applique or stuffing a pillow or doll. Or, if I’m lying on the couch because I’m ill and feeling sorry for myself.
Therefore, I relish binging on a good TV series. I don’t understand why I prefer a television series vs movies, maybe because I can stop after each episode and get up to do something exciting – laundry, dishes, floors, groceries, dusting; stuff like that.
Some of my favorites? Midsomer Murders, Ripper Street, Luther, Downton Abbey (of course), Happy Valley, Transparent, Viking, Reign, Longmire and now (drum roll, please) – Goliath with Billy Bob Thornton.
I’m making fabric dolls for my year old granddaughter for Christmas so I watched three episodes of Goliath the first night, three episodes last night and have timed it perfectly leaving two episodes and the final seam on the doll to coincide tonight. Maybe I’ll even have a hotdog and chips while I watch the show and try not to drip any relish on the couch.
