Cancel Christmas! The positioning of the Christmas Tree compromises my set-up
Got home from work tonight. 'Daddy close your eyes' said my four year old...dragging me into the living room.
'daddy open your eyes!' She exclaimed excitedly.
'what a lovely Christmas tree' I say and smile, though not with my eyes.
Because really I am thinking,what is that bloody thing doing there? My sub lives there. Where is my sub for that matter? Why are my speakers at those funny angles? Does no one understand that the optimum toe in position is around ten degrees. Why have they been pushed up against the wall? What about bass boom? And for that matter, Why are they so close together, they were 3 meters apart when i left home this morning, does no one understand that everything was set up so that when I sit in the middle of the sofa I get perfect sound? And finally, Why are those fronds of tree positioned right in front of my speaker grille? What's that going to do the sound?
'Do you really like it daddy?' Asks my four year old?
Before I answer I look at my wife. She gives me an appraising, cool, expectant look.
knowing exactly what I need to do, I sweep up my child, 'what a lovely, beautiful, big tree, what a really big beautiful tree you bought this year...did you choose it darling?
'No daddy. Mummy chose it daddy.'
I look at my wife. She gives me an appraising, cool, expectant look.
'Mummy bought a beautiful tree' I say and start counting the weeks.
