So, I spent all afternoon yesterday, from about 2pm, and on in to the evening, til about 10pm, watching TV. I started watching a marathon on the History Channel of 'Tougher in Alaska'. And then another several episodes of 'Ice Road Truckers'. I was just mesmerized, fascinating stuff.
I only got up a few times, to go potty, and check my blog comments. And I watched at least eight hours of television.
Did I waste my time? Hey, I don't care, those shows sucked me in, and pretty soon the wife was on her couch, sucked in, too. Of course, being more enterprising than I, she brought out the Health Rider and worked out for awhile while she watched. And then when she had had enough, the kids took turns wearing themselves out on it, while the wife sat on her couch with her electric belt on. That thing really works, by the way. It has a collateral effect on thighs, and pretty much any muscle in the vicinity.
But I just lay there like a turd on the lawn. And I enjoyed every damn minute of it. I had a cut up Gala apple with peanut butter to dip in for dinner. And I was as happy as a pig in shit. The wife and I talked, during ads, sometimes even during the show. The kids dropped by for hugs, played at our feet, or went upstairs and played, or danced to their music.
So, did I waste my day? I don't think so.
