It's day 20 of the March Slice of Life Challenge. We're more than half way through 31 days of writing. Thanks to the amazing Two Writing Teachers team for all of their support in this event.

Those were the days before reality television. The days when you had three channels not 300. Those were the days when you actually had to watch a show on the exact time it aired. Though I was quite young I somehow managed to let the whole family know that was my television time. There wasn't anything that would, or could, be important enough to miss Tony Orlando.
On the night of his show I'd be sure the rabbit ears were adjust perfectly, find a spot directly in front of the television, and sing along to every song. I'm really not sure how my parents tolerated the whole scene. My grandma was as into Tony as I was. We'd watch the show together when I was at her house. She was a trendy gal.
