Attention Boys & Girls! (This is only a fantasy, please do not rush out to purchase this home theater to keep up with this poor freelance writer!)
Okay, I just won the lottery and I have searched high and low for that special little something to pamper myself with. An expensive watch didn't interest me, I couldn't find the perfect designer dress to wear to the supermarket, and the man at the car lot refused to allow me any cash for my clunker. Then it hit me, I needed my very own home theater! Maybe that would be the perfect lure to get the kids to come home for a visit, or to get Johnny Depp to agree to a private screening of his....um...well, his latest movie, yes, his latest movie, that's it!
I scanned the local sales circulars and did not see anything appealing, made several calls that gave me absolutely no results and then I sat down at my computer and started to surf through the search engines with my flaming fingertips until I found the perfect home theater for me! I'm doing a little happy dance here. I need to pamper myself just a little bit and this theater is something no one else around here will have. First I need to call the contractors and see how long it will take to build another room onto my house. I'm guessing I'll need to buy the neighbors house next door so I can tear it down and have the lot for more space.
What I found is a Batman home theater system, (DVD player and television not included), for the mere price of only $500,000! It is cool, wickedly dark, and appropriate for a very personal gathering of two, or thirty or forty of your closest friends. I have estimated that I can buy the television, DVD player, extra speakers, wiring, and ushers for an additional $25,000 to $50,000. Be forewarned though, if you plan to watch a movie in my new mini movie theater, you'll need to bring your own popcorn and soft drinks. The cost of supplying those would totally bust my budget!
