Bonbon Free @nbcdays: Austin & Abigail, Eewww!
I’m ready to out my odd little self to the world, I love Days of Our Lives. That long running daytime soap of the dying breed that has aired on NBC since the time of the dinosaurs. I started watching as a child with grandma and aunt and have been hooked ever since. Careful though, if you ask me if I sit on the couch all day with bonbons and rollers in my hair I will send my purple flying monkeys after you!
Sure, my kids and hubby make fun of me and tell me the acting is HORRIBLE, but I don’t care, I’m attached. That is why I find myself so totally grossed out at one of the current story lines, Abigail’s love interest in Austin.
First let me explain, Austin was a teenager when I began watching as a child, Abigail is SUPPOSED to be a teenager, maybe 20 now (you know you never can tell their age these days as one day they are on the show 8 years old and next week they will be back 16 years old) and she is obsessed with having a relationship with Austin.
Now, I know people have real relationships with huge age gaps, but trying to make this chemistry there on the show just really skeeves me out. She is a baby and he has already been involved in enough scandalous story lines to make her sweet little head spin.
All I can say is I LOVE the DVR and the ability to fast forward through the lines that should have never been written.
