Mr Furlong and I watch a great deal of TV. Sometimes I wonder if we are just anaesthetising our brains whilst we wait to get old. Our TV watching doesn’t consist of two old people slouched in comfortable chairs,snoring occasionally or dribbling. Oh no.
We are on our computers as well. Or texting. Or Skyping. Or e mailing. Or surfing the net. Or playing computer games. We play a game together everyday. It’s very chummy. If we were on different continents we’d have to live chat. But seeing we are in the same room, we just real chat.
So we multi task.
Trouble is,we can miss what’s just happened on the TV.
We have to replay.
Unless it’s episode three thousand of some eternal series, in which case, I don’t care and Mr Furlong doesn’t seem to either.
