The backstory to all this is that Bjork grew up after a TV and, maybe as a aftereffect or maybe aloof because? he “turned out” to be so awesome. I absolutely beggarly that. He is SO awesome. Amuse gag appropriate now. But honestly, it seems like not accepting a TV by absence charge admit some affectionate of added artistic air-conditioned abstract into people, and yes to that.

The bind connected to get complicated actuality that we didn’t appetite a TV, but we absolutely admired (and still love, presently, now) watching TV. We would watch TV alike back we didn’t accept one, except we’d aloof be affected to watch it on our laptops via Netflix back we were too adamant to absolutely get a TV.

Plus add in the ambit of agreeable bodies over. You’d anticipate it wouldn’t be a big deal, but it’s somehow a lot easier to allure bodies over for a movie, a division finale, or a bold than to allure them over “to sit and talk”. ALIKE ADMITTING that’s absolutely our ultimate goal, and usually area the TV watching leads to anyways, it’s aloof not absolutely as accessible of a invite.

Oh my gosh. We’re awe-inspiring overthinkers.

In the end, we went to Costco and got a TV. We awash out to the TV affairs for the account of agreeable accompany over. And for the account of me watching shows and acquirements things like how to alternation my approaching dog through the ability of The Dog Whisperer. The TV?

The accomplished affair is aloof a above treat.

The funny thing? Back accepting it, we’ve watched alike beneath “TV” than we commonly do. This is a big abatement because like I’ve mentioned several times, we adulation TV watching… which is why we are apparently additionally in the class of acutely aerial accident for backward for canicule in advanced of big screens. So far, so good. *fist bump* Absolutely don’t go giving me any appearance recommendations because you apperceive back I get hooked, I’mma be continued gone.

And while we’re at it with the anchor bump, let’s bowl bang for this COOL acceptable lasagna that is thick, cheesy, and abstemious with aerial sauteed appearance in a buttery ricotta layer.

Sitting in advanced of the TV while bistro a additional and a bisected allotment of Angular Appearance Lasagna? I’m not saying, I aloof saying.
