Enter the TV. Now, many of you are well acquainted with TV. You might even have one or two (or six...) in your house. I was never much of a TV watcher. It just doesn't hold my interest. Lately though, it's my BFF. I still don't sit down and watch a TV show too often but I do like it on for background noise. I like to hear other adult voices in the house, it makes the day go by faster. The other day while I was watching my umpteenth hour of television I saw Melissa d'Arabian making cinnamon nachos and I almost died. Literally. Ok, maybe not literally.
