knitted TV job thingy
like a blanket with pockets you throw on the TV; to watch TV pull an activity card from one of the pockets
anyway there are people that would like to communicate more or share tasks
during the 20th century the television was kind of a communal family activity area
visualize a knitted thing like a blanket that you throw on the TV with pockets that have task cards; to watch tv the family member
must do a task card
tasks might be:
write some song lyrics
show a parent your homework
play with the fish
make an out of state call
load the dishwasher
talk about school
discuss where we should vacation
its a way of programming family togetherness as well as moving ahead on things
knitted n amateurish as I thought it might make a nifty craft that moms could make n put on ebay (yahoo answers frequently has moms looking for lucrative projects)

||Well, it beats sleeping with them.
||I'm not gonna play with the fish. Fish don't like me.
||This could be built into a TiVo or VCR. You watch for 15 minutes and then, instead of a commerical, the screen fades to black and a message comes on: WASH DISHES. Press "I did it!" when finished.
||<WARNING!! Very bad, very old pun ahead!!>
I tried playing with the fish once, but their sound was very badly off-key. Does anybody out there know how to tuna fish?
||Bun for a useful and social idea. Meta-bun for your new style of writing.
