Justifying a New Outlook

I’ve mentioned before, I’m addicted to the show Justified.   It is such a different life than I’m used to; I love to watch it and wonder if people really do live this way.

The show is based on books by Elmore Leonard about a federal marshal in Kentucky.  I can’t decide if I have a crush on Raylan Givens, or Timothy Oliphant who plays Raylan Givens.  (These are the type of deep thoughts that keep me up at night.)

When I discovered the show, I had missed a few episodes and watched them in a marathon.  After a while I started to believe that bribing people is a good way to get people to do what you want.

And if they don’t, you shoot them.

Sometimes I forget this might not apply to me because I’m not the head of an illegal organization and my family does not support itself by growing medicinal plants.

I’m married to a dentist.  I don’t think anyone has ever made a show or written a book featuring dental mafia.  I guess I could threaten root canals but the drills aren’t really portable so I would have to get the people to come to me and sit in a brightly colored chair with stuffed animals on the walls and TV’s playing Rio in the ceiling.  I don’t think it would be the same.

I do look at my friend Sarah, who’s from Kentucky, a little different.  Especially when she makes me brownies.
