“I’m a TV addict.” I’ve made that claim many times. Ever since I was a kid I would come home and sit in front of the television to watch whatever afternoon shows were on. I would get up in the morning to watch cartoons before school and on Saturday mornings. If you gave me any time of day I could tell you exactly what show I would be watching.
When I went to college, much of that was gone for while. There wasn’t TV in my room. That was probably a good thing because it gave me all that extra time to study. But running life around television shows didn’t end. Even now I catch myself coming home and flipping on the TV. Whether watching it or not, it’s on. “I’m a TV addict. That’s how it’s always been.” That may be how it’s always been, but that’s not the way it has to be.
