Am I spoiled?

My family and I have been on vacation for the last week visiting my mother-in-law.  It’s been a great trip.  We got to see lots of scenery, have lots of experiences, and in general, expose our daughter to lots of stuff she hasn’t seen before.  Some of those things I could live without.  What am I talking about?  Commercials!

After a long day of seeing the sites, we decided to kick back and relax in front of the TV before going off to bed one night.  After flipping through the channels for a while, we settled on The Fast and the Furious.  Everything was going along fine until a few minutes into the show, it stopped and there was this other stuffbeing advertised.  What’s up with that?  Commercials?  I haven’t seen those in years now.  I’ve forgotten what it’s like for the rest of the world out there.  Every few minutes, you have to take a break while waiting for the show to start up again.  How annoying.

So now I find myself at the end of this journey.  We fly back home tomorrow.  I know that I am going to miss the warm temperatures and visiting family.  But one thing is for sure: I am looking forward to getting back to my HTPC with its pause button and auto-commercial skipping.  Am I spoiled?  Oh yeah.  And I’m proud of it!
