End of the television saga

Today, after swimming, I trekked down to Santa Maria to the Sears there. They didn't have the television I wanted, not even a floor model. On my way back to the SLO Sears I stopped at K-Mart (waste of time; throw-away televisions) and Gottschalks (they no longer carry electronics). I reluctantly went back to the SLO Sears to look at the floor model.

This time I met Alex.  He actually words in the electronics section (unlike the guy last night, who does appliances) and he actually knows what he's doing. When I mentioned that the television had been on the floor for at least a year he said "Who told you that??" I told him the appliance guy had. He said he had brought it out himself from the warehouse just a week before. I believed him. I bought it. He helped me load up the Vibe - I had to do this in a hurry so I could get the car back to the rental place and pick up my baby car from the shop.

The television is in my living room and hooked up and I love it. I am so glad I got it, and hope I continue to feel this way.

How silly to get so worked up about a television. Sometimes it really doesn't make that much sense to put so much of my time into the research and hunting and so on for an item that is not really that big ticket. But still, I feel pleased, like a down-and-dirty bargain hunter.

So now I have my car back and a new television. I could spend the weekend vegging.  I could do that.
