Oh, I have to tell you the coolest story about a friend of mine.(he passed away 3-30-07) He was my bishop & stake president & friend.
his name is Alma... anyway his son told this at his funeral. Dad came home after a long day of work and church meetings and gave us a happy greeting... not one of us turned around we were glued to the TV set. We surely didn't expect this. He walked over to his tools took out his electrical wirecutters & cut the TV cord so that there was NO power & NO TV. he wanted our undivided attention & he got it!!!!

ps. I don't recommend this one Cally... just a fun real life experience.

That story made me nervous. I don't know why.

Ok, first of all, I love your friends. They are funny!! I would have fallen asleep too. And today we actually did lose the remote. But the X-box worked. Crap! I didn't catch that in time. Mmmmm, i am starting to wonder where the remote went off to. Maybe tomorrow the X-box finally poops out some how. It could happen!
