Last year my local newspaper discontinued publishing the weekly TV guide in the Sunday paper. Or, to be more accurate, her newspaper provider stopped including it. She was so disappointed in this, how would she know what show was coming on at what time? Never mind there was the digital TV guide through the cable.
Last week the paper with the TV guide didn't come and I found myself in a panic that I wouldn't know when a show was going to come on...never mind they have similar digital TV guides on New Zealand cable. After I realised this wasn't the end of the world, I laughed at myself for having this reaction, one so similar to my grandmother's a year before. There is no need for me to have a paper TV guide in order to know what will be playing. There is no need for me to watch that much TV. So I let it go and didn't worry about it.
But that doesn't mean I couldn't use last weeks as a lose guide for this week.
