    The way I see it, you should have asked your dad and put some sports into it to motivate him into buying the huge TV screen.
    Besides, you know your mom’s nothing but a HUGE Cheapo/Wet-Blanket/Killjoy, who can’t cook to save her own bacon…
    On the other hand, you could buy a projector and place it in your room and you can have a screen as big as your heart’s content to play with!!

    Let the frustrated Andy take out her frustration once on a video game, and she will be hooked.

    Why do you think I’ve never owned a portable console?

    Shrink the TV!!!!! Just throw it out along with the games. Maybe I’m biased though. We don’t have a TV at all and I don’t buy violent games for any other device. I was raised without a TV and of course without internet (I’m pushing 40). My kids are not allowed on the internet. When they are older and need on it for research, they will be monitored as well as have software installed to keep them from going where they shouldn’t. My oldest is in 5th grade, so I don’t have to worry about it just yet. I monitor their music too. If you need to occupy your mind, read a book. Its good for you! I monitor the type of books they read too.

    re: kimberly adkins

    Pretty tough to get decent books today. I quit reading scifi (the last bastion of decency in books, with other genres “going hollywood” before that) in the early 1990s when it became formula books and the grade level plummeted, driving off readers. I was privileged to grow up in the late 1970s and 1980s when one could get books that were college-level writing, interesting, and usually clean or close to it.
    Would you believe that one of my first books, Jacob’s Trouble, the Gathering Storm, I was told by an outfit that it needed to be written to the 6th grade level? In the vernacular: “ain’t gonna happen.” I got even with some of the “gotta have sex” crowd by deliberately making a scene start like it was something other than what happened.
    (The only book I have out that deals with the latter is a line-by-line adaptation/novelization of the Bible book Song of Solomon. Not many media of any type now that shows a husband-wife relationship in a positive light. )

    Sadly no one in this comic strip ever gets any older, and so that isn’t going to happen any time soon.
