Yeah, so, since we bought our Honda Civic last year we’ve had satellite radio. We got to listen to music, comedy and news like rich people. We were living the dream.
We got some crazy good deal for the first year or so. But, eventually, the good deal went away, and the folks at Sirius/XM didn’t want to negotiate a new good deal with us, so we had to go back to listening to the regular ol’ radio like poor people.
The first day or two without our satellite radio wasn’t a big deal. On the way home from work, I listen to NPR, because I’m totally smart and liberal, you guys. But I really missed the satellite radio in the mornings.
I’ve written before about how terrible morning radio shows are. My feelings have not changed. Morning radio shows are fuckin’ awful. They almost never play music, and they spend a lot of time talking about “Dancing with the Stars” and “The X Factor.” One of the morning shows still does prank calls. I know, right?
For the first few mornings I was able to entertain myself (because morning radio is not entertaining) by trying to figure out which morning shows have changed, because they change every few months in the Bay Area.
“Oh, he’s on this station now. Oh, that one station got rid of her, and now she’s doing traffic on this show. Whatever happened to those guys? I guess they got canned.”
But the novelty of that wore off after two mornings. After that, I entertained myself during my morning commute by beating myself up for not remember to bring my iPod.
So, this went on for about two weeks, but then guess who came crawling back to us? The fine folks at Sirius/XM broke down and called us. “Please, baby. Take us back.” They offered us a great deal, and now we are back to listening to the radio like rich people … for the next five months until this deal expires.
And now, what you’ve all been waiting for: Cute Spawn photos!
