I have been so productive during this time. It made me think that maybe I should just make it a whole year! Moreover, maybe before watching TV again, I should get on TV.
But then, I saw the dishes I had to do today. Oh crud!

DISHES ARE BORINGMy wife, Callie does not do dishes. Because I was getting ready for The Wedding AlBUM CD/DVD recording, I did not do dishes last week. So, we had a week's worth of stinky dishes just waiting for me to clean today.
When I used to watch TV all the time, I would pass the time doing dishes by watching Netflix on my phone. Today, to help take my mind off the stink, I decided to watch House of Cards, Season 2.
STUPID DROID THUNDERBOLT!Unfortunately/ fortunately, I forgot I deleted Netflix from my phone. When I decided to not watch TV, I deleted Netflix to help my self control. When I tried to re-install it today, I couldn't. My phone's internal memory is too full.
Consequently, instead of watching a TV show about a psychopath politician, I listened to The Moth Radio Hour. It was inspiring. I heard an Aussie storyteller explain how he accidentally blew up his monkey with an explosive coconut. Cool! Then, I heard a story about a Polish, Nazi-killing assassin who inspired his chubby daughter! Also cool!
So instead of watching Netflix, I got to use my imagination!

SUMMARYMy piece of garbage phone kept me from watching TV. That helped me maintain my self control and imagine assassins and monkey violence.
Plus, I don't have to re-start my not-watching-TV experiment. My 73-day personal record for not watching TV is still intact. Though I am not sure how many days I will go, I have already gone one-fifth of a year. Seems like I should go all the way! Who knows what I can accomplish during that time?!
Bye! I'm Jake!
