What channel do you like to watch?

One day, a friend asked, "Which channel do you like to watch?"

I said, " I don't like watching Tv. Don't have the time." (sic! sic!)

And then, the next time he saw me, he asked, "Which channel do you like to watch?"

Huh? Again? Nonetheless, I repeated myself, "I don't like watching TV. Don't have the time.." And the topic was switched to another one.

And then, for the third time, on the same week, he asked again! - Which channel do you like to watch?!

I had a nagging feeling that "I don't like watching TV. Don't have the time.." is not what he wanted to hear. So instinctively I lied, "Oh.. the one with Martha Steward.."

And he continued, "No way! That's what I like too..! Bla..bla .. bla... And Travel and Living..Bla..bla..bla.."

See, I made him happy. And if I am lucky, since I have placated his need to discuss about Tv programs, I won't have to hear, "What channel do you like to watch?" another time.

So, what channel do you like to watch? Tell me, I can fine tune myself to carry a decent conversation.
