Flashback Friday: Farewell to E.d.

17 Jun
Borrowing from American Spanking Society’s idea of Flashback Fridays, I will repost an entry from approximately one year prior. Hope you enjoy the trip down Memory Lane as much as I do!
I should be embarrassed about what I’m going to admit, but I guess I’m past the point of shame with you, readers.
For the past few months I’ve been having trouble with my DVR. The problems only occur at night when I’m watching my recorded shows in bed. The DVR locks up and I need to reset the whole thing, only to have it happen again minutes later. I’ve been a pretty dissatisfied customer.
Last week the good folks at AT&T came out to examine their equipment but could find nothing wrong. The bewildered technician stayed for awhile trying to recreate the issue, but eventually shrugged his shoulders and scribbled down his cell phone number, telling me to call him directly if the problem persisted.
That same night, the issue happened again. A few nights later found me yelling at the box and stamping my feet, pondering the tech’s cell phone number and thinking about calling him in the morning.
Well, last night, it finally dawned on me.
I was watching my recorded “How I Met Your Mother”, and the DVR froze. So, I turned off my Hitachi Magic Wand (yes, this is the embarrassing part) to get out of bed, and it unfroze. I laid back to enjoy the show and the lulling vibrations, and it froze again. A few more clicks of my vibrator, and I started to notice a correlation. Vibrator on, DVR malfunctions. Vibrator off, DVR functions.
After checking another outlet, I realized the power of E.d. (Electric Delight, aka the Hitachi) was too great to enjoy TV and get off at the same time.
So, E.d., here is your notice: you are officially shelved. I am reconciling with B.o.b. (aka Battery Operated Boyfriend) immediately because missing my HIMYM episodes is too great a sacrifice.
It’s been fun, but a girl must have priorities.

    I hope that poor Ed isn’t collecting too much dust… 😉

      That’s hilarious! Lol! I think this relates back to your product warnings post. Warning: Do not pleasure yourself near other electronic equipment.

        Ed made a strong comeback. He is a good companion to those old Shadowlane VHS tapes that I have. 🙂

        Oh…that’s a good one, Lea!
