A Bigger and Better Idiot Box


Well, we finally did it!

Out with the old and in with the new, so to speak. 

Good-bye to old-fashioned console TV........ 

(yes, one or two of those dinosaurs still exist!) 

and a boisterous

HELLO to flat screen HD-TV.

Don't tell, but I was against it. 

Our two fondly familiar fossils were functioning fine 

(**note to self: kill the alliteration), 

and I thought we should wait to replace them 

until they died a natural death. 

I really thought that. 

Honest, I did. 

And I continued to think it, too...

right up to the time when those sleek babies 

were ensconced in my living and family rooms 

and hooked up to their cable boxes!

In other words, I'm likin' the new televisions.

Yep, HD is definitely my cup of T.....(V).

=)

PS. Does this mean I'm superficial?

PPS. So far I have not admitted to my husband that he was right.

Superficial, no way! If you were, you wouldn't have held on to the functioning fossils(please don't kill the alliteration, I find it entirely enjoyable). You likin' the new tvs just means you know a good thing when you see it! :)

my husband is soooooo jealous right now...i think we're going to end up getting that when he graduates rather than my much desired southern carribean vacation.

Happy watching. You are almost fossil free now. :)

Sue said...

Yeah, almost fossil free...except for Dave and me, that is. =)

That is so fun! We finally convinced Ryans parents to buy a HDTV and they were so anti for the longest time. We found a really great deal for them and a week later my Mother in Law called me and was like "I LOVE IT!" I totally understand the hesitation though. And of all people Sue.. You Superficial.. I DON"T THINK SO!!
