Everbody Wants High Definition But Me

By: Jim Williams

My grandchildren are constantly watching TV shows over at my place. Ostensibly, my children have forgotten the joys of cartoons and won't let them observe much at home.

So every day after school, once they enter my entryway, 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.

Yet, they complain every single day about how teeny my TV is and how extraordinary theirs is at home. I have no issues with watching my television 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 rage and has been trying to talk me into one forever. I just don't see the point in purchasing something new when I have something already employed at home.

Last weekend, we were at the center and my husband dragged me into Best Buy to look around, just like he always does. He also took me by the hand through the HDTV portion as he always does to show me all the outstanding high definition channels they have on showing.

I must declare that it all does look nice and all but I am stuck in sticker shock. My spouse 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 truly love to catch 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 striking. 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 hurried 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 watch their shows.

What a pleasure it was to observe 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.
