He finally did it….after months and months of obsessing over consumer reports ratings and knowing every detail about flat screen TVs…Jon bit the bullet and bought the TV of his dreams. A Samsung 40″ flat screen HD 1080p…that’s right I know what I’m talking about here (thanks to Jon’s tutorials, I am fully versed in the TV lingo). For those of you who have not had the pleasure of hearing about TVs every weekend, let me tell you that a Samsung HD TV in 1080p means that this is about as fancy as it gets.
I am still in shock that he actually bought it. Just about every weekend for the past three months Jon has dragged me to just about every electronics store in Western Michigan: Sears, Circuit City, Best Buy…you name it. And every time we go it is the same story…..walk in the store, look at all the glorious fancy TVs, hmm and hah for 30 minutes, point out all the different gadgets, hmm and hah for 10 more minutes, I start getting cranky, I pick out the TV that is the prettiest, Jon laughs at me, I tell Jon to just buy one already, Jon decides it is just too much money, then we leave. And repeat at the next store….you get the point.
So you can imagine my surprise when he actually bought one. I was in shock. I am still in shock. The BEST thing about this purchase is that my wonderful fiancé has decided that since this TV is too big for his room back in Lansing it therefore will reside in my apartment! And let me tell you, it looks great. I love it, Jon loves it, Pancake and Henry love it, we all love it.
