The Next Dimension

I've been hearing commercials about 3D television.

Mind you, I hadn't actually seen the commercials.  I kind of caught the commercials while hauling a load of laundry or a Costco order through the living room while the kids were meaningfully engaged in an episode of "Family Guy."

But the commercials sounded cool.

Last night, though, I actually saw a commercial for this great new technology.  And can I just say, this has Classic Salfino Family Throwdown written all over it!  I'm watching the commercial and there's a group of kids having a rollicking good time wearing their 3D GLASSES!!

Now, of course 3D glasses make sense.  You can't go see "Toy Story 3D" without 'em, right?

But my first thought seeing those glasses was, HELLO!  We lose the REMOTE every day in this house.  Can you imagine that mess?

CARA: Where's the remote?!
ME, yelling from another room: In between the sofa cushions!
CARA: WAIT, Ryan!  Those are MY 3D glasses.  I know they're mine because I put pink nailpolish on the tip.
RYAN: Yeah, well, I just licked them, so....
ME & CARA: #%$!*@*!

Nah, for the sake of family togetherness and sanity, I think we'll be skipping that 3D experience.
