Watching versus doing

watchingvdoingD: Mum, you shouldn’t watch too much TV, should you?

Me: No – your eyes might go square.

D: But that’s just a legend isn’t it? It’s not really real is it? It’s a LEGEND.

Me: What do you think will happen if you watch too much TV then?

D: Nothing. Your eyes will just go round like they already are.

Me: Well, perhaps you’re right – but your brain might stop working properly if you watch too much TV.

D: Why?

Me: You might stop having ideas. When do you have YOUR best ideas?

D: When something’s gone wrong and I need to think of a way to fix it, so it doesn’t go wrong again.

Me: OK, and do you ever have those good ideas whilst you’re watching the telly?

D: No, because when I watch the telly I switch my brain off.

Me: So if you watch the telly TOO MUCH, you’d stop actually DOING things and your brain wouldn’t need to come up with as many good ideas.

D: Yes, my brain would just be switched off all the time and I would just say “erm, erm, erm” all day long and even at my birthday party I would still be going “erm, erm, erm…”!
