other options.

the media’s focus no polygamy goes in spurts… and since i work in tv, when one of those spurts occurs it turns into a big topic of discussion. not only am i a mormon, but i come from arizona where those polygamists are apparently running around (or hiding out) like crazy. mostly i like to watch whatever news outlets happen to be covering the issue to make sure they correctly identify the polygamists…

with the recent arrest of warren jeffs i turned up good morning america to listen to their entire coverage. they correctly referred to jeffs’ group as a splinter, fundamentalist group… but people, will still make comments about my wacky mormon church. i corrected them and said that the polygamists aren’t real mormons. my co-workers still teased me.

and that’s when i hatched my plan… i don’t know why i hadn’t thought of it before… polygamy could solve all of my problems. if i became a polygamist i’d have a husband just like that! (i’m sure that’d make my little sisters elated). i’d also have a hairdo and wardrobe that would NOT be compatible with the tv anchor lifestyle, but gosh, i’d live in arizona, have a husband, have tons of new best sister-wife-friends and about a gazillion kids i’d get to watch and cookfor. what more could a girl ask for?

jenelle quickly burst my bubble. she reminded me that i had no shot. she said i’d get passed over… seeing as i’m entirely too old to be of interest to any polygamist men. whew –
