Whilst (how often do people actually use this word?) taking a sick day at home from praying to the porcelain god all night, I decided to watch a little television. I came across this show. I must say, I. AM. ADDICTED. If you have never seen this show, the concept is the producers choose 2 families that could not be further apart in lifestyles and the wives live in the other families house for 2 weeks.
For instance, they had a family that was all about etiquette and a family that had no rules or manners. At the end of the 2 weeks, the etiquette family let down their guard and relaxed a little and the family with no manners learned some and life was more harmonious.
It is amazing the resistance these families have to trying a new way of living, especially since they only have to do it for 1 week.
The nice thing is, that each family actually learns something and feels that it was a good experience.
It teaches a good lesson to all of us that it is not good to be too extreme in one way or another, to be flexible with life and to be open minded to others.
