Television Marathon Champion

Have you ever stayed up real late and had yourself a television marathon? Recently the term "binge watching" has become popular whenever a long awaited show comes back and suddenly we are held captives by our screens.

I remember vividly in freshman year of high school my childhood best friend and I decided to ring in the new year by dedicating ourselves to the annual The Twilight Zone Marathon that cable channel would host every year. I remember we stayed on the phone for hours and talked while we watched "To Serve Man" and " Time Enough At Last". Its amazing to think with our teenage girl brains we were able to multitask so well that we were both simultaneously enthralled in our silly banter and hypnotized by the genius that was Rod Serling.

Somehow we managed to stay up what may have been a personal record at that point for over 28 hours. We did take phone breaks because if not our parents would lose their minds but I think because we were both easy kids so to speak, neither of our parents complained much that we were hogging up the t.v. set and phone. I have to say celebrating the new year and new decade (it turned 1990) was made extra special with The Twilight Zone's life lessons and Rod Serling's soothing voice ringing in our ears.

After that I felt confident enough to say that I felt like a television marathon champion and when I found a t-shirt that said that on it I knew I had to bring it into my wardrobe. T-shirts are so great to use whether in a causal everyday non-vintage inspired way or to bring a little nostalgic flair to your outfit. I love this t-shirt because I can finally own that I was binge watching long before the term became popular its just that back in the day we called it being a television marathon champion.

Can I still watch a t.v. show in the capacity of a marathon? Lets just say its a bit trickier these days but I can definitely bust out some episodes back to back while the kiddies are asleep. When there is a will there is always a way and this gal over here will always be proud to call herself a Television Marathon Champion.
