First of all, let me say that I love this pink television. It's just about the cutest thing ever. It's at Target.
While I'm on the subject of television, Rich just cancelled a tier and we are down to the very basic cable. A few months ago he threatened such to save some cash but I thought I'd protested enough. So last week, without further discussion (which is really uncharacteristic of our union) he called the cable company and the deed is done. Bad boy.
I wasn't a big television watcher before. Really I wasn't. When I did watch, it was passively while Rich channel-surfed. It was a lot like being in a sidecar on a motorcycle. However, I liked keeping Turner Classic Movies on during the day. I especially loved catching a Doris Day movie in the middle of the day and giving myself permission to sit still for a while to watch it.
Rich says that it's summer and we should be watching less television. He's probably right. And how nice would it be to sit together and read? He's right, I'm sure of it. But this is definitely life-altering. While everyone else is upgrading their television experience with bells and whistles like Tivo and High Definition and such, we are going backwards to network only television.
Oh, but I did subscribe to Netflix. Maybe that will help soften the blow. Maybe a pink tele would even further soften it.
