About six years ago my son bought us a DVD player for Christmas.
He thought it was about time we got rid of those big 8 track tapes. Well, we thanked him for the lovely gift. He hooked it up. We never used it.
Each Christmas he would buy us DVD's. We would stick them near the player, close the door and never open it again. After a couple of years, he finally realized that we never used it.
We admitted we did not even know how to turn the thing on!
He wrote out the step-by-step directions.
We stuck them top of the DVD player where we found them last night
Before sending DH out to get a movie and pizza, I wanted to make sure the thing worked. We gave the directions a whirl.....it took three tries, but we finally got it to play.
While DH went to get a pizza, I threw a quilt on the floor, tossed a couple of pillows on top, found some TV trays and got out paper plates.
I was all set when the pizza arrived.
Look, we actually have a movie! It's the Bucket List.
We both enjoyed our movie night. Our son will be very happy when he hears that we have finally used the DVD player!
