Are you old enough to remember?

Scurrying to prepare a snack or go to the bathroom during the commercials?

This was before the "Pause" option.

Now, admittedly, not every show required you to give this any thought. Missing a few minutes just was not a big deal.

But when you were watching something that really had your attention and you didn't want to miss a second, there was a tendency to behave a bit like a baserunner taking a lead off first base. Then when the commercials break came, you were off.

Sounds primitive, I know.

And yet, we survived.
