Considering I am too po' to pay for cable, I am left with a grand total of 5 channels.
Which I do not mind because in theory, my time is not sucked away watching say, repeats of that 80's classic C. Thomas Howl vehicle "Soul Man" on the USA network...
Instead, my time is sucked away watching hours and hours of "The 1900 House" and "The Antique Road Show" on PBS.
Which is inspiring really.
I fully plan on loading up the old car with whatever crap I can find and bring it on in for a little evaluation next time these folks are in town.
I mean, I am sure I am not the first.
I mean, just imagine the amount of crap these people see day in and day out ... so not only are the barraged with junk for hours and hours day in and day out, but they probably have to be pretty polite about it.
Like "Yes sir, I am sure your father's 'antique' electric razor is very special to you, however it isn't worth squat so if you don't mind, next time you clean out the shed, keep it to yourself. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a set of gynecological tools that date back to the early 1800's to inspect"
"Yes ma'am, I am sure that juicer's been sitting under the sink for a very long time, but that doesn't make it an antique ..."
It's mind boggling, really.
I live for that shit.
Maybe, if I can talk them into buying, say, my pop's old beer stein I can afford cable.
Hey, I said maybe.
