My parents escaped from Yugoslavia in 1967 … came to Canada … and eventually had 3 kids.
I was the youngest.
The standing rule in our house was … the youngest child in the room was the ‘gopher’.
For example, if my father wanted an apple, he’d call out … “Mark … wash me an apple”.
I’d drop what I was doing and get that apple – he never asked twice … and I knew better than to complain!
When it came to watching television … I was also The Channel Changer!
While the early 80’s didn’t offer a lot of TV channels to choose from … my father eventually grew tired of the channel he was watching.
When that happened, he’d call out, “Mark … TV” … and I’d walk over and turn the knob until I landed on a show he liked.
Needless to say, I was one happy kid when we finally bought a television that came with a remote control.
By the way … we never called it a “remote” … we just kept calling it “the channel changer”!
