Are you a TV watcher? Every once in a while – usually this time of year when there is nothing on but re-runs of crap that I already avoided last year – I wonder why I continue bothering to watch TV. I know people who don’t, and certainly days and weeks fly by where I watch the news and little else. I am tempted to get rid of it, or save a few dollars by ditching cable at least. It’s a challenge, because cable is where my favourite channels are …but those channels are rife with old programs and re-runs too. As long as I don’t sit down in front of it I don’t get sucked in and then I get plenty of other things done; some writing and reading, things around the house and maybe a visit to the beach.
I think it’s time to ditch the TV.
