Do you remember your first big purchase as a kid? How did you get the money for it? I remember saving up babysitting & Christmas money for a little black & white TV. Why I wanted this so badly, I’m not quite sure, because I didn’t watch TV all that much. I could tell you everything that I ever watched on it during the 17 years I owned it: one made-for-TV movie, several sets of Olympics, and part of one World Series. I used it more often as a monitor for the little computer I had that needed to be programmed in BASIC. I think I just wanted to be able to watch the shows I wanted to, when I wanted to. I was really buying the idea of freedom.
