Another Letter to my Television

Dear TV

I can’t believe it’s been six months since we broke up. So I saw you the other day.  And I have to admit: you were looking good.  I guess all the rumors I heard about you are true, the stuff people are saying about how you’re losing weight, working out, looking better in HD.  All that stuff.

I know we’ve been hanging out, but I don’t want you to get your hopes up.  The truth of the matter is, I’m using you for the World Cup. And now that England and the US are out, I think I’m moving on. That’s it.  There’s no chance of anything long-term.  I’m sorry to say it like this, over email, but you’d have to find out at some point, and I thought it best you find out from me and not someone else.

I know my kids are still into you, and that’s cool.  I don’t expect them to take the same view of you as I; after all, you’ve only ever really shown them cartoons and a few harmless Disney videos.  And sometimes when people split up it takes the kids longer to separate.

I still wish you’d stop hanging out over at my parents, but I’m learning how to deal with that.  And I wish you’d stop lobbying for more of my time – I’m pretty content now watching the occasional movie on DVD or playing Wii. That’s all it’s going to be, at least until January 1st, 2011 when I break out the box set of “Lost.”

Then we will have a lot of catching up to do.

  1. Hey, Good Work staying away from the TV, but I would recommend something else for you first time back rather than LOST. Not quite a disappointing as the third Matrix movie, but close. Hey, I am sure that you’ll want to watch it, I know that no one could have talked me out of it. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on it after you get a look!
