We usually watch shows that we record onto the DVR and fast forward through the commercials. I really didn’t think much of it until the other day, when the TV was on in the middle of the day and Princess Diva discovered the excitement and promise of low-budget advertising. She’s made a list of things she wants for Christmas. Here a few of her top picks thus far:
It’s apparently also good for first communions, christenings, confirmations, birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, and Christmas. I love it when the announcer calls it a “spiritual accessory.” So you may have all the weaponry you need with your shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and sword of the Spirit, but do you have the proper matching accessories?
*Acorn Stairlift: “Whoa! Mom! If your legs don’t work, this will take you upstairs.” Yep. After eleventy million loads of laundry shuttled up and down the stairs, Mom’s really close to indulging this wish of the Princess Diva’s.
*Hoveround: “That’s so nice. It takes old people around the world.” She understands that this is geared towards senior adults, but she still wants one. Because as she told me, “Mom, I’ll be old one day, too.” Won’t it be nice to have a Hoveround just waiting for her.
Baby Boy’s pretty fascinated by the commercials, too. He ran in to tell me,”Mom. We have to get this. It’s not just free. The man said it’s ‘absolutely’ free.”
I think we’d better hide the phones, start turning off the commercials again, and make sure they never know that QVC is a channel on our TV.
