This month’s Student Voices topic: What would be the hardest thing for you to give up– texting, TV, or surfing the internet?
While snowflakes fall delicately outside of the window, my mom and I sit huddled close before the television, warmth blanketing both our bodies and our hearts. On nights like this, television is my best friend and the last thing in the world I would give up.
My mommy and I bond this way, laughing in perfect synchronization at Cosmo Kramer’s crazy shenanigans week after week. It allows both my mom and me to escape reality, if even for a half-hour.
Reading this brought a tear to my eye…just today I had to eat lunch in bed, with foldable tray and all.
