Of standing perfectly right in front of your view of the TV when you're watching a show that you are totally sucked into?

  • Probably because most of us make the mistake of putting our tvs right in the center of activity, where children play and people congregate...

  • They can do this because their Daddies weren't glaziers and they think you are all powerful and can see through walls,bodies etc...lol

  • We have a big screen and my 8 year old can still manage to block the entire screen when something is on that dh and I want to watch. Now if a cartoon is on....he's a quiet as a church mouse and will sit on the sofa and won't hear a peep out of him! LOL

  • My son has that talent. It doesn't matter where I sit, he finds the perfect center and blocks my view.
