Everyday Dose Of Reality
As you know we have moved the furniture in the gym around. Hey, you make a school look like your home inside it’s not easy. Basketball hoops over your table and couches and this big red cardinal glaring at you from anywhere in the gym. He has got to go. The entertainment center is now on a big main wall centered in the gym, Macgyver needed to run the wires and cables to the new spot. Yesterday he not only hooked the TV back up, just before the kids drove me nuts, but he also finished off the surround sound. Before, we had two speakers off to the sides of the TV and let’s not forget the sub woofer. Who comes up with these names? I think if I were the first person to ever see a sub woofer, the name would be drastically different. Big noisy box is more like it, sub woofer would be a stretch of the imagination.
Speakers hung from the 30 foot ceiling almost in the middle of the gym/living room/ dining room, and with a mash of a button everything vibrated to life. I have to say from a parents stand point, you have not experienced Dora in all of her annoying brilliance until she has yelled “FIND THE MAP FIND THE MAP FIND THE MAP” in SURRounD SOunD (said in a loud boisterous announcers voice) in a gym. On more than one occasion I almost wet myself as her voice thundered through the room. And… someone please do something about Ming Ming’s voice from the Wonder Pets. At any level of volume that voice makes my eyes bounce and I think I felt a bone in my body crack. Surround sound in a big room, oy vey I am so glad all the little kids are in school during the week. Although, Blue’s Clues is now an event for the whole family. It was on yesterday, in SURRound SOunD, and Macgyver and myself found ourselves yelling at Blue along with the kids on the program. The clue is over there! NO, THERE! Yes, I am one of those people that talks to characters in movies. “Don’t open the door. Oh come on don’t open that, why would you? He is just going to jump out at you and he has a gun. Now see, you wouldn’t be dead if you had listened to me, serves you right”! I am just a hair shy of getting on the PA system to instruct characters what not to do in their movie.
