As The World Turns
It will be official on September 17, 2010 when As The World Turns, my favorite soap opera will go off the air. I can not believe I am losing another one. First it was Guiding Light and now ATWT. This show debuted on April 2, 1956, two months before I was born so it really has been a part of my entire life. My mother watched it and so did I. I'm already crying everyday as I watch each episode and each character slowly fade into my past. It's a friend and will no longer be a part of my life. I know, I know, it is a TV show but the characters are with you every single day of the week and become sort of real. Hold on there...I know they are characters, actors, and the characters are not real but you get vested in their stories and I've had a lifetime of being vested here. So on September 17 (would have been my grandmother's birthday), I will be crying as they sign off forever. People, you may not realize it but daytime television is changing and we will be stuck with Dr. Phil or Dr. Oz, not my favorite shows I can tell you. I will be watching movies at the office from now own.
