Mrs. C and I tend to fall asleep with the bedroom TV on.
Don’t judge and get all “I haven’t watched TV since ‘The Ed Sullivan Show.’” We watch TV a lot. Many people do. Many people do and say they don’t. We are not embarrassed, and even readily admit most of the stuff we watch is trash.
We also don’t like ballet, operas, and have vowed to NEVER pay good money to watch “Hamilton” if for no other reason then everyone says, “You just have to see ‘Hamilton!’”
No, I do not.
Hmm I seem to have gotten off track and into a rant…Sorry!
So, we tend to fall asleep while the TV is on. Mrs. C usually falls asleep first. I often do not like the shows she decides to fall asleep to, and when she is sound asleep I will change to a show I can fall asleep to.
Unfortunately Mrs. C is a light sleeper.
“Why did you change the channel?”
“Because you were asleep and I hate ‘Sex and the City’.”
“I was sleeping, changing the channel woke me up.”
“So I have to watch your show when you are asleep?”
Sometimes if I turn the volume low and wait for a commercial, I can get away with falling asleep to one of my shows.
The other night I awoke at around 2AM and was unable to fall back to sleep, probably because ‘Sex and the City’ was on again. I have already seen Carrie pound on Aiden’s chest and cry “You have to forgive me” about 15 times. I hate that scene, and Carrie is still a cheating bitch!
Did I just go off track again?
So, since Mrs. C was into a gentle deep sleep breathing pattern, I stealthily switched the channel to “Gold Rush.”
After a few minutes I had to use the bathroom (It’s an old people thing). Back in only a short time, I found the channel was changed to the Game Show network, and Mrs. C was fast asleep.
In less than two minutes Mrs. C woke up, changed the channel and then fell asleep again.
Who does that!
To make it worse, when I felt it was safe to change the channel again, I hit the ‘last’ button assuming it would go back to “Gold Rush.” It did not. It went to the “Sex and the City” channel which now had on a different show.
Mrs. C not only woke up from a deep sleep and changed the channel before falling asleep again in less that two minutes, she actually channel surfed in the process. Once again,
Who does that!
I know many couples fight over control of the TV remote, but I lose the battle even when she is asleep.
I did fall asleep before I found out if the Rubadoo family won the $20,000 on “Family Feud.”
