gratitude-a-thon day 2069: your viewing options

 

How did people have stay-off-your-feet surgery before Cable, Netflix, Prime and Hulu? (By the way, even Facebook has a show–and it’s pretty good–it’s called Sorry for Your Loss.)

I mean, it used to be that, believe it or not, and I know my kids think this is an urban legend, we had three stations–ABC, CBS and NBC. AND we didn’t have remotes to change from one of those three stations to the other. WE HAD TO GET UP OFF THE COUCH

I KNOW.

If you were sick, you watched a preposterous, mind-numbing soap opera (oh Luke, oh Laura), or Let’s Make a Deal, or The Match Game or The Mike Douglas Show or Merv Griffin. Cartoons were on a few times a day, but if you were stuck in the den with a fever, you couldn’t watch Bugs Bunny for more than an hour because he just wasn’t on.

I’ve been stuck in the house for the past week and without the bazillion options on the telly, I’d be completely bonkers. Of course, I’ve read a couple of books and also every political site there is. And of course, I’ve been internet shopping for my bathroom renovation, which at the moment sounds like the entire world is exploding on my second floor.

So, today there is gratitude for Difficult People on Hulu, Dark and Safe on Netflix and of course, the Trump show on CNN and CNBC (which just keeps just getting better and better). Despite the plethora of entertainment, I cannot wait to get back on my feet.
