We are a one television household. And it kills our buddy Dave (a hetero bachelor) that in 2010 we do not have a plasma screen television. He thinks we need multiple plasma screen televisions, and he likes to point out places he'd install a flat screen television if he owned our house. It's a fun game. What baffles Dave most is that my husband is a super geek; we have a server closet in our house, but we don't have a plasma screen television.
Finally, Dave confronted my husband and he asked: "WHY (!) don't you have a plasma screen television? Is it money? Because you know they've gotten more affordable."
My husband replied: "I am not afraid of the cost of a new TV. I am afraid of the cost of the piece of furniture my husband will want to put it on."
Dave has been telling everyone this story because he thinks it makes me look ridiculous; however, my husband knows me very well. He knows I am always looking for a chance to go buy a good piece of furniture.
