What Would You Do?

Sooo, on a totally unrelated note. I'm watching the show "What Would You Do?" If you've never seen it, its hidden cameras capturing how people react when they're thrust into real-life ethical scenarios.  It's about seeing if they mind their own business or step in.  For example, tonight's episode is about a guy sitting in a diner and another man overhears him talking about the fact that he has AIDS and then refuses to touch the same menu or even sit by him. Both these guys are the actors. They tape the other customers to see what they'll do and the majority of them help the man with "AIDS" and yell at the other guy. Don't even get me started on the gay family that went out to dinner and the waiter harassed the gay parents (the gay couple, 2 kids and waiter were the actors.) THAT was touching. Ten years ago I find it hard to believe that customers would've stood up for the same kind of family like they did in this episode. I'm so proud to be a part of this generation.
Anyways, the show always makes me cry. Tears of joy for sure ;) It's SO amazing to watch these people do the right thing. Like, there's really ALOT of good people in this world. My Friday nights use to be about dancing till I sweat my makeup off and scoring free drinks. Now its watching "What Would You Do" and crying because I'm so moved by the goodness of strangers. And reminded that there's more good in this world than there is bad. Oh man, does this make me boring?! HAHA. I'm kidding. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Unless its with a stranger offering goodness through a free margarita. And chips and salsa. Oh wait, how about "What Would You Do," margaritas and chips and salsa. Now THAT would make me cry tears of joy ;)
Happy Friday Night!
