Family dinner fails to find television show to discuss

Londonderry, NH – The Wilson family found  a simple and effective way to maintain a family bond – eat dinner together at least once a week. Unfortunately, last night’s pretty much wiped out any hope of the another family bond after the family failed to find a television show to discuss.

The dinner started with garden salads and a reference from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and looked promising when another member recognized the quote from NeNe. Unfortunately, the member had only followed season one and didn’t care for the “new woman” in season two.  Another member said he planned to become a loyal fan of the upcoming NBC drama FlashForward but really couldn’t give a compelling reason why. The only semi-successful conversation happened ten minutes in when someone mentioned “Toddlers & Tiaras” but conversation fizzled a few minutes in.

The family salvaged the conversation with a few time-killing anecdotes about school and work but ate quickly while the others talked. The family completed the meal and cleared the table by 7:53 PM and retired in separate viewing rooms.
