How much do you love your kid – The Game Show

How much do you love your kid GAME SHOWThe school calls hours after you’ve put your child on the bus for school and informs you that he never showed up. What do you do?

DONNA raced down to the police station with a picture of her son Wylie, pleading for help in finding him. That’s when she was approached by Nick Dart, the host of a new reality game show, HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE YOUR KID?

NICK: You have 60 minutes to find your child. We’ll provide you clues. If you win you’ll get $500,000, but if you lose … well, let’s not think about that right now. Instead I want you to take a look at this monitor and then I want you to ask yourself, “How much do you love your kid?”

In a desperate need to bring her son home safe, Donna played the game. Before the close of 60-minutes, Donna solved every clue, found her son and was awarded the $500,000 prize at which time the Nick offered to double the reward if she could catch the kidnapper, then he armed her with a gun. Again Donna conquered the task – she found the suspect and shot him to death. The show announced her award of $100,000,000 as she was being cuffed and put into a police squad car.

That’s when Forrest Whittaker came out of the woodworks and into the camera frame as Rod Serling.

The moral of the story was, “What good does it do a man to gain the world and lose his soul” [Mark 8:36], or perhaps more specifically stated, “What good is it for you to win a million dollars if you won’t be able to partake in the joy of it?”

The reality game show idea that The Twilight Zone was selling was very cheesy and corny, but then again, aren’t most reality shows a bit of such? In fact the cheesier and the cornier it is, the longer the 15-minutes of fame, (ie.. The Kardashian laundry list).


Reality game shows are not my thing,
from living island remote to standing on stage to sing…
Reality games shows are just not my thing.

However, I very much like reality shows.
My preferred topic now-a-days is ghosts.

I don’t watch A PARANORMAL STATE or a  GHOST HUNTERS story
Tho I fancy giving the BIO channel most of my line-up glory.

I like Celebrity Ghost Stories and a show called The HAUNTING
I like The Long Island Medium because her say is rarely daunting.

In light of all that reality television is,
I’m Qui
And there’s just nothing cool about gaming the kids.

What’s the HOLD UP

Encroachments are real, and here’s proof:

Encroaching on The CREATIVE PROCESS

My brief online research turned up very little information about encroachemnts, but boy-oh -boy are they real. Just ask any artist whose creative works have been reviewed by industry officials and ask them about the RED INKED NOTES they received in return…

Ask Dave Chappell. Surely you remember “the creative differences” he had with the producing officials he ultimately “ran away from” on Comedy Central. Remember that? The Dave Chapell Show was creative from day one. Somehow when money, producers and networks get involved, it becomes less funny and more political. WHYYY? (Screams my inner artists who whole heartedly misses the laughs the artist and creator of the show used to render us).

Can you imagine someone or some persons attempting to steer your creative process to deepen their own pockets? Demanding you to do it…even if you’re not feeling it. To me, this would surely stifle the creative process. To me, this is surely an active and live part in the careers of most successful creative persons. There’s definitely a balance that needs to be struck for the talent and the networks to make money. I’m sure it’s hard for everyone, as for me and my creativity — I’m following Oprah. Harpo Studios is a beast and very few can encroach on the giant Ms. Winfrey is. Ask ABC.

Encroaching on SACRED SPACE

While visiting someones home and they tell you to take off your shoes and make yourself comfortable do it, but don’t plant your bottom into the only lazy boy recliner in the room, for it may be their favorite chair. Afterall, there was only one such seat in their house. Trust me, they weren’t keeping it vacant waiting for your visit. Sacred space needs to be listed under common sense.

It is common sense not to stand too close to anyone, no matter how long the line is. In fact, just so you know, standing too close to me and encroaching on my sacred space could induce ‘yawn sparring’. 🙂 The next topic will tell you why…

Encroaching on RESPECT

Respect is crucial,. Please don’t forget it. In fact you demand it – so GIVE IT. Better yet, GIVE IT they way you’d like to receive it.

Encroaching on REALITY

Just because they’re dating you online – doesn’t consumate a marriage or make a relationsship exclusive. Just because The Kardashians did it in an episode, doesn’t make it possible for you to do it anywhere…and on, and on, and on. Know the difference between REEL and REALITY. The differences could make you or break you.

Encroachments are improper and boundaries shouldn’t ever be overlooked.

Not literally encroaching, but paralleling education…like that of books.
