I’ll have you know, “The Fly” keeps a hideous blue radio in his kitchen, much to Mrs. Fly’s chagrin.
This radio has a broken antenna, broken CD door, held together with blue tape, and looks like its been punched in the face a few hundred times.
See, once upon a time, the radio was rather good looking, despite not matching with Mrs. Fly’s granite and steel kitchen paradise of luxury. However, after listening to many “short end of the stick” NY Met games, often times “The Fly” would rip the fucking radio out of the wall and beat it like an Iranian shoplifter.
Naturally, shortly thereafter, I’d make up with my little blue radio and place it back on the counter and listen to its scratchy, low grade audio.
However, Mrs. Fly’s attitude towards this “apparent eyesore” grew by the second. After the CD door “accidentally” broke, she started throwing it away.
As you know, she underestimated me.
Much to her chagrin, “The Fly” would fetch this gruesome blue radio out of the garbage, garage or closet, clean it off, then place it back on the counter—in order to listen to more losing NY Met contests.
This radio has been the root of many debates at Flydom, as Mrs. Fly and I jockey back and forth, “debating” the fate of the antenna-less blue radio. Basically, she throws it out upon sight, exclaiming: “go buy another one. This thing is disgusting.”
I do not agree.
See, the blue radio and I have a lot of history. Granted, it is unable to pick up any music channels or play a CD anymore; I am still loyal to it.
It picks up like 3 AM channels. That’s all I need. Fuck it.
So, the point of the story is this: if you want to get into heated, meaningless debates with your wife over “artsy” kitchen decor, place a monstrous blue radio on top of the counter, which is held together by tape (attached is a real pic of my beloved radio).
After all, we’re all blue radio’s, to a large extent, excluding “The Fly” of course.
