We lost the remote to our AppleTV a while back. Tiny things that they are, and eager TV watchers that we have, I’m not surprised. So, Dave reprogrammed a remote we had for an air conditioner to work for the AppleTV. When I want to turn up the volume I choose “temperature up”. When I want to change the channel, I press “fan slower” or “fan faster”. The “energy saver” button is what used to be “select” and the “cool” button is what used to be “menu”.
But, now that we are using both, the AppleTV AND the air conditioner, things get a little dicey from time to time…because the remote still works with the air conditioner too. Last night, as I was selecting a show to watch (I’m almost through my first season of Modern Family and I am completely hooked. My brother introduced to me to this show and I love it!), the buttons I pressed on the remote not only started the show for me, but also reset the air conditioner thermostat to be 83 degrees and I turned on the “energy saver” feature. All by pressing two buttons.
And can I just say that that kind of thing is SO TYPICAL around here.
I told you that Dave sucked the glass off the front of the computer with a toilet plunger so he could replace the hard drive, right? Did I tell you that one? It was almost a year ago now, but man, that story needs to be legendary. Makes the dual-action remote sound a little elementary.
Also typical around here? Cake for breakfast. Sure the recipe says, “Coffee Cake Sour Cream Muffins“, but we know the truth. It’s cake and we love it.
