It’s TV-Turnoff Week.
Needless to say, we’re not observing this in our household. Depriving Xy of her remote control is like trying to separate a crackhead from his or her crack. Of late, she mainly watches CSI reruns. She says it helps her cope with the buttload of homework she has to do each night.
Yet for some reason or another, we are observing a TV-Turnoff night tonight. It was Xy’s idea, and who am I to argue? Our plan is to ride our bicycles down Canal Street and take the ferry over the Mississippi and ride up and down the levee in Algiers, then stop somewhere for a drink — hopefully a bar with no TV.
Post scriptum: Apparently not everyone thinks TV-Turnoff Week is such a great idea.
