How strong is your marriage? Could it survive 7 days without tv? I’m not sure mine can! We’re 4 days into this 7 day marriage trial abstinence from TV. Our receiver went out Thursday evening and it takes a week to get a new shipped into Podunk Holler. We have different tastes in movies, different tastes in music. Pandora is on the tv streaming through Netflix. I prefer Loretta Lynn. Vince prefers Lynyrd Skynyrd. We’re listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Seriously, it isn’t bad. I am about 93.5% sure I could live without TV so long as I have XM Radio, which I don’t currently have because I didn’t need it since we have TV but we’re considering giving up TV when our Dish Network contract is up. If we give it up at the end of the contract and then decide to get it again, it’s no big deal. I think it would be nice to see if we could live without it. Once upon a time we said we needed Dish so we could get the local channels but we really don’t have any “local” news since we’re 70 miles from the closest local station. Then we thought we needed local tv for the weather but as soon as it starts to rain, the Dish goes out anyway. We can watch the weather on the internet and see everything we need to see plus we can hear tornado sirens so we don’t need tv for that. Maybe I’m 99.9% sure I don’t need tv.
Football games . . that might be a problem. It would probably be less expensive to rent a room at the local hotel to watch football games than it is to pay for Dish all year.
What do you think . . could you live without TV?
