Today, we did our part to revive the economy. Yup, we went and bought the new flat screen TV. It's a Sony 46" LCD. And when you look at it in the store with all the other TV's, you're thinking, "Ooh, maybe I need the bigger one."
Let me tell you. When you get it home, it is just fucking HUGE. I mean like, obscenely big. Like if you put on a tennis match, you'll have to wag your head back and forth to follow the ball. Like you feel the need to rent a bunch of Cinemascope movies. Like "That actress's head is twice the size of yours", huge.
The Burger King commercial makes you fear that eating a Whopper might prevent you from ever standing again. The baby in the Pampers commercial gives you a massive case of heebie-jeebies about what might be found in one of those diapers. And the bra commercial for the "full figured" women?...yup, HUGE!
I plan to sit here and just marvel at huge-osity for the rest of the day.
Update: I finished publishing this post, looked up at my new TV and noticed...It's Still Just Awesomely HUGE!
Update the Second: Two hours later and yup! STILL HUGE!
Update the Third: I just got back from the store, and I swear the thing grew some while I was out.
