We recently bought a new television, for our bedroom, we got one of those flat screens you know like what we have in the studio. Y'all saw it when you were on the Grand Virtual Tour. Remember? Of course you do my dear internets. Anyway the reason we bought it... we really had to buy it... no truly on accounta the remote broke. Hey don't judge us, we are just doing our part and besides this was not the first remote we had for that old television. No my Beloved has gone through at least three remote controls. Well besides the remote being broken the old television had about a half inch, literally, worth of dust on it. Yeah I have bad allergies, for real, so I could not... in no way could I have dusted that old TV. I would still be sneezing...ah … ah … achoo!
It took a few minutes to mount the hardware on the wall, right where that old painting used be. You remember the one, I think, it was in one of those photos that I had taken a while back when I was sick in bed and I was showing you my view. Remember? You know it is the best location for our new TV. It's right there front and center at the foot of our bed just high enough that it can be seen over my belly and just low enough to be below the ceiling fan pull cord.
We got the new TV hung on the wall, cable cord screwed in and the power cord plugged in. The batteries were loaded in the new remote control and we were set. After puffing up our pillows we heaved ourselves up on our tall crazy a$$ bed We made ourselves comfy then my Beloved pushed the "on" button... are you ready for this...
This is what we got!
We were not very happy, no not at all. We fiddled with it for a while, maybe 10 to 15 minutes. Then we decided we would check the other TVs in the house. After all maybe the cable out. And you know what it was.
And that just goes to show you, don't get a bad attitude when your old remote control stops working and you are forced, yes forced I say to buy a new television and then the new one doesn't come on.
By the way we soooooo love the new TV. Y'all should all break your old remotes so you too can rush out and buy something you don't need. Come on my dear Internets... we all need to do our part to kick America’s economy into gear!
