Come On Down!
This last week I have learned the happiness that daytime television can bring. I had a little totally minor surgery (which is a story for another day.) and was lounging last week, spending my share of time in front of the television. My morning started off with the BEST game show EVER, The Price is Right!!! I am sorry, Loritab you didn't make me nearly as happy as the girl that won $12000 playing Plinko, or the guy that won BOTH showcases with an awesome bid in the showcase showdown (he was only off by like $40 or something crazy like that). My afternoons were filled with movies and travel shows. I had no idea what I was missing, working the days away. I also love how at the beginning of the day all they show is "old people" commercials (Scooter stores, mean old Wilford Brimley yelling about diabetic supplies, and drug adds) then as noon approaches more food commercials and the afternoon is rounded out with commercials about going back to school. (catchy jingles and ways to make more money quickly. ) Man, when I was younger I didn't pay nearly enough attention to wasting days away and now I can't just sit and watch it unless I have some medical proceedure done. Well I guess I am willing to sacrifice myself in the name of science if it means more of those wonderfully wasteful days in front of the boob tube.
