Every day, I learn of more and more people who watch the Food Network on a regular basis.
And it’s not the kind of people you’d expect. It’s understandable that
my mom watches the channel to get recipe ideas and food tips. I
understand how some of my friends’ moms could watch it. I could even
understand some of my friends occasionally watching it–maybe they’re
learning how to cook early.
I can sort of even understand how people would watch Iron Chef. When
my brother first turned that on a few years ago, I thought he was
crazy, but soon learned that it isn’t abnormal for teenagers to watch.
But he watches other shows, too! I can’t remember all of the cooks’ names, but he watches them.
I’m pretty sure that one of the kids I tutor watches the channel (he’s
the one who said that when he grows up, he wants to be “either a
professional basketball player or a comedian”).
I can’t remember who, but other people have definitely told me lately that they watch the channel as well.
Is this weird?
