I asked my wife if we can upgrade our current digital cable box to a HD cable box for only 7 more dollars a month.
After much prodding and begging, she finally relented.
I called up our cable service provider, made an appointment to pick the unit up, brought it home and set it up.
I was in awe of the clearness and crispness.
My wife walks over and says, eh, I can’t see that much of a difference. But with that 7 dollars more a month, you could’ve done something more useful with that money.
That kind of stung, because recently we sponsored a child through Compassion, and for 8 more dollars a month, we could provide regular HIV/AIDS tests.
My wife said in passing, but I really struggled with it. I mean, no one needs HD TV.
Think of me what you will, but after I watched my first football game, I couldn’t part ways with it.
I’m sad with myself, but the sadness melts away as I watched Sportscenter.
Yes, you may shake your head at me. I probably deserve it.
