WHY TELEVISION IS BAD, HOLIDAY EDITION

My wife had her piano students in for lessons yesterday, and in the process of conversation asked them what they wanted for Christmas. One conversation was instructive.

My wife: "So, what do you want for Christmas this year?"

Child: "A Ferby!"

Wife: "Oh, what do they do?"

Child: "I don't know."

Wife: "Well, aren't those the little furry animals that interact and talk?"

Child: "I don't know."

Wife: "Well, why do you want one, then?"

Child: "I saw it on TV!"

Which is why around Casa de Adams, we tend not to let the kidlets watch any TV at all.

Jordana, had to laugh at that one. Yes, that's probably the best thing to do. :)
