An actual, polite dinner conversation between myself and Raelyn this evening.
Raelyn: It’s ruining my life.
Raelyn: These commercials are ruining my life!
Raelyn: Commercials have always ruined my life!!
You see that? Even though Mom & Dad both work in the cable television business, the TiVo has trained the child that commercials are evil.
I don’t know whether to be deeply ashamed or profoundly happy.
Oh, and I explained to her that “ruined my life” wasn’t exactly nice to say. She stood firm, though and I kind of respect her for it.
