I say it because it's simpler. I'm under no misconception that a VCR will be involved.
I never said, "Let's VCR Saturday Night's episode of 'Hunter.'" Mainly, though, because nothing is important enough to make anyone watch "Hunter" on tape delay. Nothing.
I used to wonder, back in the 70's, when I was growed up and living in the 21st century if we would call those Sunday afternoon trips out into the country in our flying vehicle "a Sunday afternoon drive" or a "Sunday afternoon flight" around the countryside.
So many things have disappointed me about growing up. Probably as disappointed in the lack of a warning in the 70's that although you will have 577 tv stations in the 21st century, 565 of those channels will be infomercials, and even on the channels you want to watch, every 5 minutes there is a commercial about ED or a commercial about some wonder drug where there is 10 seconds of information about how the drug will improve depression, blood pressure, gout, etc., the next 2 minutes is disclaimers of how the wonder drug will give you TB, cancer, or a heart attack.
