‘Rising and shining has become problematic for me, just lately. I do rise each and every morning, but that part about shining? Not so much so…’
Getting a good start on the day, according to some experts, means enjoying a good hearty and wholesome breakfast. (A concept that I gave up on some years back). These days, I generally prefer a full frontal cholesterol laden assault by eating a barely cooked steak, one fried egg and a slice of plain toast. [My only concession to ‘good’ nutrition, a glass of tomato juice, just so I can say that I got some veggies in there somewhere].
When I used to have my first meal of the day, I’d generally have the TV blaring somewhere in the background. Yeah, it added a nice extra dimensional quality to the whole culinary persona that made up many of my mornings. Sadly though, that is no longer the case. My TV now spends more and more of its time in the off condition. Why? Mainly because of the incessant and even threatening commercials that are airing all the time! They’ve become increasingly something of an annoyance and a thing I want to avoid. (Much in the manner a hen pecked husband, bowing under an anticipated early morning assault by his hypertensive wife, might skedaddle out the back door to go eat at a local restaurant).
So, the TV is now left pretty much dormant while I’ve migrated back to the radio for music and inspiring morning chit chat. What commercials there are, tend to be local and even entertaining. ‘Come on down to Chuck’s Auto Sales and pick yourself out a real beauty today!‘ You know, that sort of stuff. Now, as I eat while only half listening to the drone of some DJ, I find I can re-energize and better prepare for the challenges of that day. Heck fire! I can even see a time where all my TV’s just might end up at the dump!
