Jan. 23 - Lisa's Musings From Every Day Life

I got a new TV today.

Well, not a new TV, but one that's new to me.

And its screen is probably twice the size of the one I was watching.

It's so wide that I can read the fine print on the bottom from the dining room while typing on my laptop that sits on the kitchen table.

I didn't realize how small the screen on the old, (also given to me), TV was, until this afternoon.

When the new one was switched on for the first time.

I guess it's like ignoring ugly wallpaper in the house. You're just so used to seeing it, you don't notice it any more.

Did I mention I have a LOT of ugly wallpaper in this house?

But back to the "new" TV.

For some reason, everyone offers me their old TV's, and I accept them.

In fact, I think I'm one of the few people on earth who has never bought a new TV.


Ironically, though, with all the new TV's I've been given in my lifetime, I only have one hooked up at a time.

And it's in the living room.

I'm also probably one of the few people in the country who doesn't have a TV in my bedroom.

Instead of watching TV before I go to sleep, I read.

And, I think that's a good thing.
