Our Television Is The Talk Of The Family

By: Jim Williams

My grandchildren are always watching television over at my place. Ostensibly, my children have forgotten the joys of cartoons and won't let them follow much at home.

So every day after school, once they enter my entry, the TV turns on and doesn't turn off until their parents come to pick them up. My grandchildren are my joy and I love to watch them after they get out of school. Nevertheless, they gripe every single day about how undersize my TV is and how extraordinary theirs is at home.

I have no difficulty with watching my TV and I am nearly blind but apparently, technology has already captured my 5 and 10 year old grandchildren. My spouse is also on the big HDTV craze and has been trying to talk me into one forever.

I just don't see the point in laying down cash for something new when I have something already employed at home. Last weekend, we were at the center and my spouse dragged me into Best Buy to look around, just like he always does.

He also took me by the hand through the HDTV section as he always does to show me all the great high definition channels they have on display. I must admit that it all does look nice and all but I am stuck in sticker shock.

My husband then had me converse to a salesperson about all the offers they have at the moment such as free interest if you open up a card through them or 10% off the purchase. The 10% didn't seem like much but it did help with covering the tax on the television and I guess my grandkids would really love to watch their shows on a nice HDTV.

I told the salesperson to hurry up and ring it up before I changed my mind. Now, I am home with my new high definition television and it is quite stunning. My blood-shot eyes don't have to strain to see a small image anymore because the screen is big enough for me to see everything with no problems.

My grandchildren rushed over when they heard of the purchase and you would have thought it was Xmas morning. They could not wait to turn it on and check their shows.

What a pleasure it was to watch them so excited! So I guess I have now jumped into the 21st century with high definition. At least I won't have to hear anymore about how great the HDTV is because I already know.
