We’ve been watching the reruns — from the beginning — of Blue Bloods. The family lives in a huge house that no cops I’ve ever known could afford. The house is meticulously kept.
In other cop shows, the apartment owner works all the time. He or she never has time to sleep, much less clean. They are single. Yet, their homes are spick-and-span.
And about the house in which the Reagan police family lives. How did they afford it? And who takes care of it?
Who cleans? I’m pretty sure it’s none of the stars.
You never even see an occasional temporary helper. How do they do that?
Then there are all the television lady cops. They are thin and obviously none of them have ever eaten a doughnut. Their makeup is perfect. Their hair is perfect. They wear 4-inch heels and yet they still pursue the bad guys!
I’ve met a lot of lady cops. Some of them were attractive, but none of them were thin like those TV lady cops. Or perfectly made up. Or, for that matter, made up, at all. No one wears heels of any height.
Also, these lady cops wear uniforms which fit as if they were made to order. Oh, wait … they were made to order.
What was I thinking?
