I came home early from work today with food poisoning...fun, fun. Wine Guy stopped by to bring me some ginger ale and while I sipped tentatively on the glass, he channel surfed. From Tour de France to some sexy female carpenter with a nail gun on HGTV, he was all over the place. Nonstop flipping for the entire 2 hours he was here. I wanted to follow Melissa's advice (see comments on earlier Boob Tube entry) and seize control of my remote, but being that I just puked my guts out, I thought rest was probably my first priority.
But I did tell him a bit about the thoughts I posted here earlier in the day (while I ate the lunch that would have me puking within 60 short minutes). I asked him, "Is it true that you are just hitting that button, not really looking for anything to actually watch?"
With a little smile on his face he replied, "Well, maybe if porn was on, then we'd stop flipping."
I guffawed. He is a kidder and enjoys trying to get me riled up (the consequence of being the youngest of four kids, it is VERY easy to get me riled up). But I persisted, "So really, all you are looking for is some version of porn?"
That explains the half-naked chicks shooting AK-47s and just about everything else.
A few channel clicks later and he lands on some latter day version of Star Trek which inspires Wine Guy to clarify his earlier statement, "OK. Porn or Star Trek."
A few more clicks that lands us on some sexy animated women in tightly drawn clothing that shows off their unreal curves and overinflated cleavage. "Correction again," says Wine Guy. "Porn, Star Trek or animated porn."
Hmmm...I wonder in what order?
