My wife was sitting on the couch. Not an odd sight to see, but how she was sitting was weird. The couch was on the other side of the room facing a wall that she had cleared of pictures and everything. She was holding up her hands like those movie directors do when they are framing a scene. She told me how a nice 72-inch ultra-high-definition TV would look great in that spot. She is the movie buff and sports fan. It is like role reversal here, but I knew that I’d be finding TV deals for Cyber Monday 2017 as soon as I got on my laptop.
Not only that, I would be also searching for a builder to put in a modern entertainment center. Nowadays people have those gas log fireplaces underneath their big screen TVs. This way you can cozy up to a movie or the fireplace fire. Both at the same time if you want. Us Americans are weird that way. We even have to multitask our relaxation. Me, I like to sit on the porch and watch the tree branches move in the breeze. I’m easy to entertain. The wife and kids need high-def, broadband, stereo, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and more. That’s okay, we all have our favorite ways to veg out with entertainment. Mine is just low-tech.
However, I do like a good action or sci-fi movie now and then. I am probably the only Luddite that likes Star Trek. Well, I’m not actually your typical Luddite. I do carry a smartphone, but I don’t stare at it constantly. No chance of me getting hit by a bus while walking and texting. But, on the other hand, when I do watch TV I do appreciate a big screen and sound that makes it feel like I am in a movie theater. So, I’m okay with the 72-inch UHD TV my wife wants.
