This lady suggests that these late bedtimes can be a healthy release and not something to feel guilty about. Which is fine and I’m all for one less thing to make me feel guilty. However, she doesn’t address the most obvious problem: wake up times remain fixed. So binging on Grey’s Anatomy until 2330 might be relaxing in the moment (seriously Shonda, Grey is being paid $20 million an episode to lay in a coma!) but the next morning we wake up with bouncing kids and exhausted parents.
Though I do love the idea of adding ‘revenge’ to common expressions to give them ‘additional emotional intensity’.
