Okay, here is the deal:
You must spend one week (7days) with no TV of any kind. NONE. No NEWS of any kind- so you can’t “Cheat” by listening to radio talk shows, PBS, or reading newspapers or magazines.
Rule Two. You must do two of the following activities in that seven days: Make one meal, where everyone helps prepare it, everyone eats it, and everyone helps clean up after words.
When you and your friends/family, have finished dinner, and desert comes out; each member must tell their fondest childhood memory, or a story of their first kiss, or their first kiss of their first true love.
You must visit a museum, pick your favorite exhibit, and then find : an artist from that period, a map of a town, the pay scale, the most popular book, and what music was being played at that time. If possible, find an artifact from that year, or decade.
You must play outdoors. Any kind of play counts. Climbing, frisbee, walking, swimming, BUT- it can’t be organized. Nope. Only you and the other participants make up the rules, and what you shall do.
Take a day to read your favorite book – again.
Take a day, to listen to one song, from each decade of your life. Let the memories flow.
Tell someone you love them.
Help someone in a small way, without having to ask them. Just do it.
Smile, at least once each day, at someone you don’t know
Tell someone, each day that they did a good job, and why.
Rule three: No conversations over any News Story for that week. No matter how passionate you, or the person talking to you is. Say to them: “I have taken the TV7X challenge, and cannot talk about any of those subjects. What was your favorite childhood memory?”
If you make it through the whole week. Challenge someone you care about to take the TV7X challenge.
Then, if you want, write me about your experience, and I will post it here- sans name. Start today. TV7X challenge!!!
