I always put a video on for C while I exercise on my elliptical. My DVD player is old, though, and doesn't accept many of our DVDs. Today she wanted to watch one that we hadn't tried yet. She also called to my attention the fact that it was scratched, so we didn't have a lot of hope.
I put the DVD in the machine, then turned to get my elliptical ready. "Momma," C said, "it's not going to work. The DVD player says 'loss', so it won't play."
We've had this DVD player for years, and I've seen lots of messages, but never that one. I turned to look at the DVD player display.
It was 10:55.
