Big Screen TV

Some day we will have a big screen TV, but that day won’t be any time soon. My husband says that we have to have one, and I say the one we have now is enough. There are other things that are higher on the priority list, like owning our own home, and I don’t hardly think we need to spend up to a thousand dollars on a TV when we have a decent one now that works just fine. I understand that they size of a television is more important to a man, but this is where I will not budge.
We walk into a store and he stares at a big screen TV like it was his last meal or something. I tell him he’s pathetic, but in all honestly I do understand wanting something for whatever reasons you have. There are good reasons and bad reasons, but they are valid nonetheless. I understand that a big screen TV is just something that he wants, but I do think it is in our best interest to wait a few years before we buy one.
I think his need to have a big screen TV came from the day he went to watch football at his dad’s house. He doesn’t see his dad a lot, so this was something he was really looking forward to. When he got back he went on and on about what it was like to watch the game on the big screen TV, and he wanted to know when we could get one. I told him I wasn’t buying one just so he could watch football once a week on it. I guess it was harsh, but someone around here needs to be logical.
I’m not a big meanie, I promise. He has all the toys he could ever want. He has five guitars, and all the lovely expensive things that come with it. He also has a surround sound system, and a nice stereo system in our car. I know that the big screen TV will be next on the list, but I am holding out as long as I can. I keep reminding him that the big screen TV will be so much sweeter when we can bring it home and set it in a living room that we own, not one that we rent. For him, perhaps, nothing will be sweeter!
