Some of my best memories as a kid were sitting right on the floor in front of the TV with a heaping bowl of cereal watching cartoons as I promised my mom I would not spill on the floor. It's so weird how kids in general back in the day had to sit right on top of the television set. But I guess kids now do the same thing with their smart phones or tablets while eating their cereal.
