Do you remember the Dark Ages when you had to get up to press the chu-chunk buttons on the ole-tv?
I remember how lucky my best friend Lisa was to have her own tv in her room when we were teens. Her family bought a hotel and each room was already kitted out with tv’s so her room had one. Her remote control? A pool cue she half-inched from the games room! She used it to poke the chu-chunk buttons and me when I was audacious enough to fall asleep.
I remember the pink one I had at uni.
I remember how I used to have 4, the tv, vcr, dvd and stereo.
I live everyday with the fact that my sons lost their remote, discovered that mine works their tv and, so, it’s always a grumpy scavenger hunt in their swamp for it.
Memory Sparks rock. Thanks Shimelle.
