While I might someday be the old lady who cannot use the remote, I do like new technology. I think that must be because I remember old technology. Gather round, young’ns, and let me tell you about ye olde television color settings.
When I first married Gary, he had a black and white television. My family had purchased a color television ten years earlier, so this was an adjustment. My Mom made a few remarks, and may have fronted some cash, and the soon we had a color television.
One day Gary said, “I think these colors could be brighter. You had a color TV. How do you make it brighter?”
”There’s a color dial Dad said we were not allowed to touch.” That would be the same Dad who fixed the TV after Gary adjusted the image to colors accurate only on Mars.
I don’t blame Gary. I screw up and adjust colors every time I paint. There are infinite ways to screw up color.
I thought of this last night when Gary was watching TV and said, “I think these colors could be brighter.”
Then he got the remote, navigated to the menu, and picked one of five color settings off the menu. Definitely better.
