The Wrong Reasons

So, bad news. There won't be any Bachelorette recap this week.

I am in Florida (seen in the photo above) on vacation. I had originally planned, like usual, to chronicle the timeless yarn of a good woman and the one thing that will always fulfill her: pinning roses on men's chests like the autocratic villain in a dystopian novel. Unfortunately, dinner and some technological constraints intervened.

Even more unfortunately, I won't be able to film and post the reactions of assorted family members as I explain that I need to spend the next 10 hours working on a post about … the Bachelorette.

David Rutz breaks down the most important news about the enemies of freedom, here and around the world, in this comprehensive morning newsletter.

Who knows what happened on last night's episode? I do not. (Besides humiliation and deceit, the two towers of marriage.)

I am told:

"You should be advised you missed mutual, romantic, finger-to-lips ‘shhhing' WHILE slow-dancing between Dez and a nondescript man named Chris(?). Mutual! A spectacular combination of cliches rarely seen together, even in reality TV."

Mutual! I've got the Bachelorette DVR'd at home, though. I'll be back in the saddle next week. I hope y'all laughed and laughed at last night's episode.
