Doom Box

If you have Netflix, then you know the magic of the list. The place where you can add items to watch. Items that catch your fancy while you’re scrolling through the categories. Items that Netflix recommends to you but you don’t want to watch at the moment.

And so the items sit, waiting patiently until you have the time and inclination to watch.

And sit.

And sit.

Until the box of doom appears. You know the one—available until…

I admit my heart thumps painfully when I see that box of doom. Suddenly, the movie, show, and documentary is no longer patient. It’s impatient.

And the clock is ticking.

So now the prioritizing begins. Can I watch 13 one hour episodes in a week? I definitely try:D.

Sometimes I power through.

Other times, I get partway in and then we part ways.

And sometimes I forget to scroll through my list and miss the doom box, later to realize something is missing.

Ah, well, there’s always a DVD option.

Until next time.
