I have a confession to make. And it is something that you will just shake your head at and say, “Why, that’s just crazy!”
We have multiple VCR’s. VCR’s that are gathering dust and taking up room. We have not, in all honesty, watched a VHS movie in at least 7 years. So why are we still carting around two VCR’s? Yes, 2 VCR’s. Hubby had one. I had one. We came together and now we have two. And no matter where we lived, we hooked up the blessed machines dutifully, and there they sat. Blinking at us stupidly.
I am not sure why it has taken all this time for us to realize that we are never going to use the blasted things. Or the VHS tapes that have seemed to come along for the ride. When my husband said after we recently moved, “Why do we keep plugging in these VCR’s when we never use them?” I just gaped at him. I had no good answer, because there isn’t one. No good response to our abundance of outdated gadgetry.
So yes folks, we have seen the light. The blinking light that keeps flashing 12:00. The VCR’s will be finding a new home. Probably a home to someone who also owns a separate videotape rewinder. Ah, one can only hope
