A Modern Fairy Tale


Once upon a time (last week) a family had a working television and a broken DVD player.

This was a problem because the lady of the house (me) needed a DVD player for all her exercise videos. So the man of the house (Joe) ran to Best Buy, purchased a new DVD player, and returned home to install it.

Things were going smoothly until there was a little crash.

Actually, it was a HUGE crash because a television falling upside down onto the floor makes a lot of noise.

The situation had flip-flopped -- gone topsy-turvy! The family now had a working DVD player ... and a broken television.

Huh. Go figure. The lady of the house (me, again) still couldn't access her videos, and the boys (big and little) couldn't use the Wii (which, according to them, was a monumental problem). As for the man of the house, he was secretly happy because he had been wanting a flat screen television for the longest time.

So the man of the house (who may or may not have accidentally on purpose bumped the television) ran out again, this time to Costco, and purchased a new one.

Now the family had a working television and a working DVD player at the same time.

And everyone lived happily ever after.

The End.


Uh-oh.

"Mom! Look what Dad did!"

Timothy was given free reign to study, pull apart, and dismantle.

The Wii is up and running.
Also the DVD player.
No photos of me working out, though.
