Sitting watching TV with Significant Otter last night, commercial break comes on.
LL: There was just an advert for a bed and the bed had a TV that went up and down into the end of the bed! [attempts to mime a TV going up and down into the end of a bed. This is harder than it sounds] And it was only EIGHT HUNDRED POUNDS!!! That's, like, how much a TV costs on it's own, plus you get a free bed!! IT'S LIKE A BED FROM THE FUTURE!!!
SO: Firstly, there is so much wrong with how you judge the value of things. And secondly those beds-with-
TV's-in have been around for ages. I've seen them in shops. I've even played with the buttons that make the TV's go up and down.
LL: [looks at SO like he's just admitted to having had a pair of Marty Mc Fly hover-trainers for the last six months and kept it a secret] So TellyBeds are, like, a Thing? You've known about these magical things?
LL: And we still don't have one?
SO: We don't watch TV in bed.
LL: That's because we don't have a TellyBed. We've just got a boring, ordinary bed. I hate our bed. It's got no technology in it at all. It's not digitally entertaining in any way.
SO: [with a cheesy wink] The analogue entertainment is good though.
LL: [choosing to ignore this terrible attempt at innuendo] I bet EVERYONE else has a Tellybed except us. This is so embarrassing. This is like being the last people to have a VHS player. We have a Betamax bed.
SO: I'm really not sure they're as popular as....
LL: Of course everyone has one! They're only EIGHT HUNDRED POUNDS. [taps on website on phone] I can probably get one with Paypal right now...
SO: We are not buying a bed with a TV in it.
LL: If we had a telly bed you could sit in it all day and play Skyrim.
SO: And you could bring me snacks and beer and bottles to pee in?
LL: If it meant we could have a technologically advanced televisual bed from the future, yes. I would do that.
I'm still not sure if I won. But I'm not letting this one go.....
