I remember being a kid and having to stay home from school because I was sick. I wanted to watch my favorite show "Inspector Gadget" downstairs on our color TV. My mom said I could watch it up in her room on her black & white TV (remember those), because she was watching "All My Children."
After throwing a tantrum, my punishment was to sit on the couch and watch AMC with her. I sat and pouted through the whole episode. When it ended I thought to my self, "I hope I'm sick tomorrow, I have to find out what happened to Erica Kane!"
