Guilty Pleasures

To me, cricket is just like S&M. Saying you like S&M is not something you tell everyone because you fear their reaction – it’s exactly the same with cricket. Cricket is my guilty pleasure. Fact. I love to talk about it but not everybody wants to hear about it. This got me thinking, everyone must have a guilty pleasure, which makes it ok for me to secretly (or not-so-secretly these days) love cricket. I’ve compiled a list below of some of the best guilty pleasures I’ve come across in the past week. Some are mine and some are from friends and family. If you’ve got any weird and wonderful ones of your own then please comment, I’d love to read about them.
