Up to Here
Ok, ok I’ll probably not be chucking the TV. It just goes to show how I can be just like Grandpa Bombadee when I get into a snit. That’d actually be a lot of chucking. We have a lot of TVs and some of our computers double as TVs. I do believe there may have been a time where Grandpa Bombadee chucked a TV out the front door. In fact he was fond of chucking things out the door for dramatic effect. There were some forehead height kitchen cupboards he sledge hammered and chucked out the front doors, several toasters that burned toast, a cordless phone or two, a porcelain toilet and maybe even an occasional teenage boy. I believe each chucking started out the exact same way, with my father having had it up to “here” and then the forcible removal of offending item whilst waxing obscenities and the rest of the family standing helplessly in he next room either trying not to cry or trying not to bust out laughing depending on if it was another toaster or one’s teenage boyfriend/greatest love of their life getting chucked. Once something was chucked it never came back. It’s a good thing too because sometimes my Dad knew better than anyone else when something was broken. Dad’s are good at that.
