a new TV

When it was a few days later after the fridge was broken, our video recorder was suddenly broken, too.
Our TV was old-fashioned, in other words, it was a CRT TV. So, we had watched terrestrial digital broadcasting through the video recorder. Therefore, when the video recorder was broken, we couldn't watch TV at all.

My husband and son love watching TV while I hardly watch it. So, it was not a problem for me. Rather, I was glad because our conversation between my son and I got increased.
On the other hand, my son often complained that how boring no TV was. When the fridge had been broken, I had rushed to an appliance store, but regarding TV, I left it to my husband.

Last Saturday, my husband went to an appliance store to buy a new video recorder which was supporsed to be connected to the old-fashioned TV. However, it couldn't after all. Then, on the next day, he bought a new TV, too.
Especially, my son was delighted. Before, he hadn't wanted to bring his friends because he had felt ashamed about the old TV in my house.

Last night, my son and I was watching a TV show titled 'You は何しに日本へ' , or 'Why did you come to Japan?'.
We sometimes watch it. And it showed that an American 15 year old boy came to Japan by himself to see his father working in Japan. He was very interested in Japanese knives and he went to Niigata (maybe) to observe a blacksmith working. The boy's enthusiasm for knives was amazing.
My son and I were impressed with him very much.

After we watched it, to my surprise, my son said " I want to go abroad ! " for the first time.
To tell the truth, I've waited to hear the right words from him. I've wanted him to go abroad to study. I should've gone there to study in my teens. It's one of the most regrets in my life.
I don't know whether his hope is temporary. I asked him that where and what he wants to do. He said that he wants to go to UK to buy souvenirs of soccer goods, LEGO, Harry Potter and so on. I was disappointed to hear this. He loves shopping.
However, above all, it will be the most difficult to convince my husband.

Last Saturday, my husband went to an appliance store to buy a new video recorder. It was supposed to be able to connect to old-fashioned TVs. However, it wouldn't connect to ours. Then, on the next day, my husband bought a new TV, too.

My son was especially delighted. Before, he hadn't wanted to bring his friends over because he had felt ashamed about our old TV.

I don't know whether or not his desire is temporary. I asked him where he wanted to go, and what he wanted to do. He said that he wanted to go to the UK to buy souvenirs of soccer goods, LEGO, Harry Potter and so on. I was disappointed to hear this. He loves shopping.
However, above all, it *will be most difficult to convince my husband to allow my son to go abroad for anything but a personal growth endeavor.

*If you are actually thinking of attempting to convince your husband...then yes, 'will' is okay. If it is still a fantasy, or something which you see as unlikely, you would use the word 'would' in its place.


Re: English Corrections

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
You often corrected mine to delete 'and' as a conjunction.
I'll be careful about it.

Oh my days! I hope he can visit England! In fact, I hope that both of you can.

Re: No title

Hi, Always visiting.

I'd like to go there, too.
As for my son, I thought he was too young to go abroad.
Thank you for your comment as always.
