Television

A constant presence.

Portal of information and entertainment.

Bearer of news both good and bad.

Secretly bleeding you of time and energy.

Turn the bloody thing off.

Go read a book instead, philistine!


Written in response to Thain in Vain’s Week 33 prompt: Open the book you are reading right now (or a favourite if you aren’t reading anything, oh, and shame on you!), turn to page 33 (or 33% on e-readers) and write a super flash fiction about the first proper noun (person, place or thing) on the page!

  1. I love it Heather. Especially at the end when you call the tv watchers Philistines.

  2. Love it! And it sure does! Well done!!! TiV

  3. Think you pretty much nailed it. (But then, as you know, I’d read a book rather than watch a TV show any day of the week!)

  5. Hahaha I love this. I feel like it should end a little longer though, with “pull up your pants and get a real job!” But that’s because I would say that, and everything you wrote here. πŸ˜‰
