I don't watch a lot a television. Like everybody else, I occasionally get sucked into some horrific show like this (which deserves it's own post, believe me) or House Hunters on HGTV, but rarely do I put aside time just to watch a specific show. Until now, that is.
Please don't ring me up on Tuesday night at 9 o'clock, because more than likely I have my eyes glued to the TV to watch this man, Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs on The Discovery Channel.
Mike, who has in the past sang professionally with the Baltimore Opera, is the host of the show. Dirty Jobs showcases the very messy jobs that many men and women have to work at every day. Not like your typical office job, Mike takes on tasks like roadkill collector, septic tank cleaner and geo duck harvester (let me say about the geo ducks - if you are a fan of sashimi, you should probably skip this episode).
There are three reasons that bring me back to the tube each Tuesday night. First, Mike is always funny, never condescending and seems like an all around nice guy. Secondly, you really do appreciate your work environment after seeing what average people do every day to keep our world turning. The last reason is the most obvious - could he be any cuter?
