Guilty Pleasures

Monday, June 6, 2022


The Greek playwright Euripides stated, “Short is the joy that guilty pleasure brings.” He failed to include, however, that guilty pleasures are so fun. 

A guilty pleasure is an enjoyable activity that usually induces minor feelings of guilt. It’s something harmless that you like doing despite feeling a bit of shame for enjoying it. Such a combination of pleasure and remorse - ha ha!

One of my guilty pleasures is watching my favorite soap opera, General Hospital. I watch it every day. Here are some other examples of common guilty pleasures: 

  • Ordering take out because you don’t feel like cooking
  • Playing video games
  • Eating junk food
  • Sleeping late
  • Watching reality shows or binge watching TV series
  • Reading gossip magazines
  • Certain foods (coffee, chocolate, ice cream, etc.)

Guilty pleasures come in many forms, and indulging in one indeed brings great joy. What is one of your guilty pleasures?
