So I got to watch General Hospital for the first time in many, many months. Luckily it was a day where they were showing juicy stuff, so I got caught up good and gasped and yelled "WHAT!?!?" a lot. A new character was introduced, and I KNEW the actor from somewhere. At first I thought he was from Another World, but I ended up deciding that he was the second Bo on Days of Our Lives, back when Days of Our Lives was still cool.
I figure I'm allowed to talk about soaps, because other people talk about wrestling, and they're very very similar. People like long-running, complicated stories. Like that actor that I recognized? He must have left DOOL when I was . . . lessee, sixteen or seventeen. So I got quite excited when I recognized him; it's like I'm in on something, you know? I think regular sports are like that too. I mean, you can sit and watch a game and enjoy it, but if you know the history between the two teams, and where the players have played before, and what kind of game they've been having recently, and all this other background information, then you can enjoy the game in an entirely different way.
Hmm. I guess everybody knew this already, but there ARE some people who would say that wrestling and soap operas are nothing alike. But those people are idiots. And are afraid to have someone think that they watch soap operas. Or wrestling. And I have no time for those people.
