OK, this is going to sound bizarre.
I just got a digital antenna, which allows me to watch broadcast television.
(Yeah, I know it’s no big deal. But I haven’t had cable television since 2003, and I never got an antenna for television until this week. So all that stuff people were saying the past decade about the thing they saw the previous night on the tube. … I had no idea what they were talking about.)
