FOWC with Fandango — Television

FOWCWelcome to September 12, 2020 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “television.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

SoCS — Too Much Television

For today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, Linda G. Hill has given us the word “television.” She asks us to “talk about your favorite show, past, present, or future, or about the apparatus itself.”

I admit it. I watch too much television. But since Trump was elected president in 2016, my viewing habits have changed. I used to watch TV dramas, situation comedies, and, of course, movies, sports, and, occasionally, the news.

Not any more, though. Now I watch cable news most of the time. Sometimes CNN, but mostly MSNBC. And never, ever, ever Fox News.9ae85bb2-61d4-4c27-87bc-d2f52ebeea42 My wife and I, when the news is so damn aggravating that we need a break, will watch HGTV shows, like “House Hunters,” “Property Brothers,” and “Love It or List It.” But at night, it’s Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O’Donnell.

I think, however, for my own mental health, I need to go back to watching dramas, sitcoms, movies, and sports. Because if I don’t stop watching so much political news, one of these days I’m going get so angry that I might throw the remote control device at my TV and break the screen.eb68267c-5c9b-446a-9f17-7e45fd42596e
