    I'm not sure what brought TV Guide to mind, but I remember getting it in the mail or at the grocery store, and reading the synopsis of my favorite shows, hoping for clues about what was going to happen. I also remember when they made it bigger, like a regular magazine, not the same at all

    when my first son was like 2 we realized that he was fascinated with tearing up the tv guide. It got to the point that we would treat him with a new tv guide every week to tear up.

    It was tres adorable.

    It had to be like a guilty pleasure. Something that had value to the parents that he's suddenly allowed to tear it to pieces. I don't know.

    All I know is that he loved tearing up that tv guide.
