I have a crush on someone. Three people actually.
It's a harmless crush, really. I'll never act on it because I'll never meet the people I'm smitten with face to face. You see, the women in question work for a local news station, and I'm in love with their broadcasts.
I tell The Boss that I watch this one channel over the others in the area because they have the most attractive newscasters, and she thinks it's an awfully funny joke. Don't tell her this, but there is more truth in that statement than I let on.
Take a look for yourself:
Oh, Kiley Bennett. How you make my knees weak with that smile, and how you distract my eyes with those low-cut blouses. You recently came back to the news desk after being out on maternity leave. How I missed you! It seems that you change your hairstyle every month, but I don't care. I'll still watch in rapt attention as you tell me about the car accident on the highway, or about the latest state legislature scandal.
When it comes to viewers, I'm your number one fan, Sarah Long. I'm not sure what exactly it was, but the second I first saw you when you stepped in front of that weather map... All I can say is that you had me at "Here's your extended weekend forecast". Of course, part of the attraction lies with your fair skin, those beautiful eyes (are they green? blue?), and an amazing rack that is almost too big for television.
Don't think I had forgotten about you, Diana Ichton. You are one of the newer members to the station, but you quickly grabbed my attention. I'm a sucker for brunettes with long hair, and that dazzling smile proved to be the knockout punch. Sure, there are times when you look like you just finished smoking a bowl in the news van, and I've seen you mess up during a live report more times than President Bush has mispronounced the word "nuclear", but that doesn't matter to me. I'll still gladly watch.
Call me a pig for objectifying these women if you must, but is it wrong to appreciate an attractive woman? Before anyone gets all huffy, I'm also appreciative of what they do, and the hard work it must have taken for these talented women to get to where they are today.
And for the record, I don't watch their channel only because these hot ladies give me the news and weather. I watch it because I prefer their style and means of presenting the news over the other stations and newscasters in the area.
Getting to stare shamelessly at them while doing so is just an added benefit.
