Happy Friday everyone! I was going to write about the first time I went camping, but those plans got derailed after I saw the Dr. Phil show last night. First of all, I only catch Dr. Phil sometimes because it’s on right after Family Feud, which I watch religiously. I’ve loved Family Feud since the 70’s, when Richard Dawson was drinking martinis during commercial breaks and making out with all the women on the show. Remember that? It was always so creepy, but I guess he was just an overly affectionate, drunk game show host, and who doesn’t like that? Maybe Alex Trebek should consider drinking during Jeopardy.
I have to be honest, because even though I think Dr. Phil is kind of douchey, I get a kick out of his whole psychology mixed in with his hick-ish Texas accent. He says things like “I don’t think y’allz want help.”
Anyway, it was a treat last night. He had a guy on who has “Adult Baby Syndrome.” Do you know what that is? It’s where adults act out and fantasize that they are babies. In this case, “Baby Brett” is a 24 year old man who holds down a job, but happens to bring a pacifier to work with him. He also eats in an adult size high chair, sleeps in a onesie, and had a friend build him an adult size crib. I was completely entertained by this bizarre, yet hilarious disorder, and was a little disappointed that no one was there to see it with me, which is why I have to tell you.
But just when you think it can’t get any weirder, Dr. Phil brings out the girlfriend who spoon feeds Baby Brett, bathes him, talks to him in a baby voice, and he calls her “Mommy.” But the best part? She changes his diapers, and he shits in them.
This is from the show:
Brett says Cat (the girlfriend) mothers him in every way: she cleans up after him when he drools, spits up, wets and dirties his diaper. He adds to the list of his baby habits, saying he gurgles and even throws tantrums.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve liked baby things,” Brett says. “When I see babies, I’m jealous; I wish that was me.”
From 13 to 16 years old, Brett says he faked bed wetting by pouring warm liquid onto himself. It was then, he says, he learned to lose control of his bodily functions.
“Are you wearing a diaper now?” Dr. Phil asks.
“I am wearing a diaper now,” Brett answers. “I wear diapers 24/7.”
He also says he feels a thrill when people see his diaper. “Sometimes, I will go into a store and crouch down so people can see.”
I live for this kind of TV. The weirder, the better. I love that he crouches down so people can see his diaper, as if it’s sexy. Look at me, I’m sexy, I soil myself!
Thanks to our beloved YouTube….look what I found! If this doesn’t make your Friday, I don’t know what will. Enjoy it!!! Have a great weekend too 🙂
