Lee and I have noticed over the past year as our work seemed to take on a life of its own, that we watched less and less TV. Now, to be sure, I only watched the news anyway. Really. He watched news, assorted sports and Breaking Bad.
But, the news started bugging me. I felt like, first, what I was doing when I stopped doing it was more interesting than the news. So, that habit stopped some time last fall. Whenever I did catch a piece of it, it seemed kind of stupid. I felt like the news people were almost condescending but frosted with a gooey niceness. I felt so cynical about it.
But, alas....the NFL. Lee has watched football since he was a kid so he had to have the NFL. Last Sunday, he watched the Super Bowl of course. I popped in to check out Eli Manning and Tom Brady a few times.
Then on Monday, he asked me...Should we cancel our cable - no tv? NO TV?
It didn't take me a minute to answer.
He made the call.
As of today. we are TV free!
At least until September when football starts all over again....
