I always get all sorts of crazy looks when I mention it, but I grew up without a TV.
Pop culture from the 80's? I only know what I heard on the radio. Cartoons? Don't even bother. My husband claims I grew up under a rock.
Here is what's interesting. I once vowed to read every book in my public library, and got a decent way through. I get to experience pop culture from the 80s and early 90s through someone else. People love telling me about their favorite shows from when they were young. I love the wide-eyed looks I get when I tell people I've never seen Yogi Bear or Wile E. Coyote & Roadrunner.
The best part? I'm married to a guy who had TV growing up, yet we still don't have it. We have the internet.
