In real life there is no laugh track, but there should be
We are probably the only family in America today without cable.
This is a proven fact.
And because we don't have cable, we also don't have "regular" TV either. So the long and short of it is: No TV programming at all.
This arrangement has been fine thus far, my husband, the boys and I just watch movies on the DVD player when we feel the need to be entertained by a lighted box.
We got our news from the radio and the Internet.
But my husband felt something was "missing" and that it "wasn't the same." In spite of his feelings, we still don't have cable.
He knows we are better off without it.
But the other day our TV viewing changed. My husband decided to buy RABBIT EARS!
He was very excited about it. "Now we can watch the news!"
Also we were looking forward to Funniest Home Videos on Sunday night. That is still on right?
Anyway, since 7-year-old Max and 5-year-old Danny have gone without regular TV most of their lives, the new array of programming is quite foreign to them.
They stare at the TV with great interest, and Max asks his dad if they can watch the "channels" together.
Max also told me he really liked the "laughing computer."
"Huh?" I asked, "what's that?"
"Oh, it's when they laugh at stuff on the channels."
I realized with amusement that he meant the famous laugh track.
It's like my boys have come out of the woods and into the 21st century.
They are like Nell over here.
But, I personally think that's a good thing :)
Here's your freebie for today, it's called Sequin Special, I know boring name, but I was pressed for time. I got start planning more!
Don't forget to let me know how you like my stuff and if I should just cash in this designing thing. Sorry, I'm insecure.
