It is estimated that the average adult spends more than five hours per day watching television, and that doesn’t even take into account those weekend Netflix binges. If you’re at all like me, television is a pretty big part of your life. As much as I hate to admit it, I spend way too much time in front of the television. That’s just it—I’m often in front of the television but not actually watching it.
I spend a fair amount of time on my own at home, so the television serves as background noise. It’s almost always on, playing the news, the Food Network, the Discovery Channel, or one of those ridiculous home renovation shows that I love to hate. (Seriously, who actually lives in a tiny house?!) I even sleep with the tv on.
While the television is a constant companion, so are my two dogs. Which means that whether they like it or not, my four-legged companions watch A LOT of television.
