...there was a woman who knew that she could very easily get caught up in works of fiction. It didn't matter if it was a novel or a TV program; if it was captivating, then she was sucked in. The problem was that, once sucked in, most of life came to a standstill. Sure the family got fed and schooled and prayers still got prayed, but other things fell by the wayside until that book was finished or that series was done.
Such was the case when said woman's daughters brought home the first season of "Once Upon A Time" from the library. 22 episodes - 2 weeks to watch them. Every spare moment was spent thoroughly wrapped up in the lives of these story book characters. All extraneous work was put on hold until all 22 of those episodes were done. It's a good thing this woman has a patient husband who thoroughly understands her obsessions.
