This past week I have become very popular with the TV people. Not those that watch it but those who want me to watch more or less.
I can buy a bundle, get internet or phone — all for a great price. I was considering one company or the other. Just to be sure I scrolled through all the shows I have now.
I did this while I ate my poached eggs for dinner. There I was confronted with two 600-pound people. They were getting a check-up with some doctor who could give them a surgery to help them lose weight. I couldn’t gag down my eggs when I saw what the people ate to get that big. I felt so sorry for them. We can criticize and blame shame them but some folks have a hard time with this process called living.
Next up on the TV menu was a show called Dr. Pimple Popper. Really? This is entertainment, watching someone mucking about with some pus filled thingy on a person’s body? I didn’t watch the show nor did I eat my dinner.
Just for the heck of it I checked a few more shows on the channel. Some of the shows dealt with the size of people, large and small. Another show allowed prying eyes to enter the limited space of a hoarder. How sad is that? I decided then and there that I would certainly not request that channel if I bought a new plan.
I made another decision. I will send a bit of money to Knowledge Network. I like the programming. No commercials. Maybe a few shows are repeated from another time. What the heck I say? I didn’t see the whole show the last time. I fall asleep in front of TV.
Other TV channels ask for money for their programming as well. Both PBS stations provide excellent shows. Music, drama, science and a variety of documentary shows. I can’t afford to send all some money but I can be thankful another person did so I don’t have to watch the crap provided by commercial stations.
Mind you it is award season for TV, movies and other stuff. I have no idea about the people involved nor have I seen any of the movies.
Someone right now is telling me “to get a life.” I have that. Looking after this piece of land which provides sanctuary for animals large and small, and me. Caring for my old rescue dogs is rewarding. I got a life which is very peaceful. I don’t need to binge watch anything unless it is looking at the full moon or the deer outside my window.
