Major event at the in-laws

My in-laws favorite pass time is watching televised sports, so the television set is a major part of their lifestyle — and by “major”, I mean ginormous! Every few years the necessity to replace their television becomes a major thing. All extended family members are pulled into numerous discussions prior to a decision being made.

When they were forced to make the jump from a television in a faux wood cabinet that sat on the floor to a television that sat on a console, it was a big deal — and by “big”, I mean ginormous! (OK, I’ll stop with the ginormous thing).

Now…they are forced to go from a television that sits on a console to a television that hangs on the wall. Only…it’s not going to hang on the wall. It will sit on the console…

…just as the good Lord intended.

    You made me laugh, Linda! My mother-in-law’s object of obsessive love is her stereo system in its old mahogany cabinet. Despite loving gifts of new technology, she sticks with old reliable. If only ipods came in enormous wooden cabinets….!
