What is it about a man and the remote control?
It is like a king and his sceptre, an accountant and his calculator, a doctor and his stethescope, and artist and her paintbrush, a builder and his hammer, a................well, you get the point!
I am amazed at the skill in which Dave handles the remote. He can switch through the channels faster than the speed of light. I am astounded at his manual dexterity as he maneuvers his way through TV land. He can fast forward through a commercial or mute something that he doesn't want to hear within a nano-second. I am stunned by his ability to manage the remote, read the paper, check his online messages, watch sports, eat a snack, and play a round of computer poker...all at the same time...without skipping a beat.
And, I have learned not to invade his "remote domain". I don't dare try and take the remote from those tightly wrapped fingers of his! Volume adjusted? Ask the "remote king" and he will take care of it for you.
Yesterday, I happened to catch a glimpse of Dave sound asleep on the couch clutching the remote. (He says that he was wide awake....you be the judge!!!)
Even in his sleep, he doesn't relinquish that control.
Men....and their toys!
