It made a lovely sound when it landed

Oh, you would have loved the noise, this delightful splintering smash with pops and a trickle on of small bits landing. I went up to the terrace, three stories over the road, and stationed the kids on the balcony so we didn't brain any neighbours and then let it rip. It was so lovely, the TV went next, followed by the phone and the VCR...........smash, boom, crash, pop. The tube in the TV was the best, a huge banging pop, like a hundred corks pulled out at oncce, and then tinkles that went on and on and on.

Actually I lie and lie and lie. Though there was a point today...... And someone is throwing out a TV, it is out there in the street all neglected. The husband even offered to haul it up for theraputic purposes, but no, we're new here and its a small town, and I would like some of the neighbours children to be allowed to come here to play someday..................

I did rip the back porch off the house one day though, with a circular saw and two crowbars....... it made lovely tearing noises too.

I routinely think of tossing my computer out the window. And the TV. And anything I happen to be working on at the moment. Or my coffee pot. And my refrigerator. Stupid fridge.

Ha Ha Ha I have this same fantasy!

When I started reading I was thinking "Ohhh she DIDN'T!". I would have been jealous.

There are times when it would feel so good to do that...there are times.

That TV is still out there and I keep looking at it speculatively....if we lived in a bigger city.....or I just didn't give a shit..........it would be so very good.
