The moment our little TV went kaput, KK went out and got us a 40-inch giant.
I have little faith.
For the little Samsung was not even three years old when it suddenly blacked out and refused to re-start.
I was all for reclaiming our 10-year-old box TV (not flat screen) from my mum's, which is still broadcasting beautifully. All the box TVs work great.
But no. KK wants to get a clearer glimpse of the soccer ball from a piece of flat-screen machinery which I fear will die on us in three years or less.
That's how electrical devices work these days, no? To encourage quick turnover?
The kids celebrate the big screen and sound which they can finally hear, by popping in the Cars 2 DVD.
Now watching TV in our home is rather appealing.
I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.
