Channel 19 is the Mexican channel. Anyone who grew up in or around Sacramento knows this. Any males who grew up in or around Sacramento know this well. I am a fish, just biting the shiny lure without giving a second thought.
Flipping through the channels, I noticed something. Whenever I pass the Spanish speaking channels, I'll flip beyond it mindlessly and then involuntarily reverse direction to get back to the channel. The women on these channels are so freaking hot that I am powerless against them. It's actually laughable. I don't speak Spanish even though I've taken Spanish one about three times, or at least began the semester in Spanish one three times. I've even recruited Latina girlfriends during these periods to slyly enlist their help with Spanish. I found that while their ability to speak Spanish is an asset in this respect, their Latina appeal is equally destructive to productive study habits. Without naming any names, I admit now that in this plot's most recent incarnation, no study session made it past 5 minutes of studying before spiraling out of control into un-study-like activity.
So, when flipping through the channels, I won't even be aware of whether or not I'm going through forward or backward. However, upon seeing one of these lovely ladies, I instinctively reverse the process by depressing the opposite direction on the channel button. And I'll change back before the next channel even registers on the screen. There could literally be the winning powerball numbers being broadcast through some pirate medium for my own benefit on the following channel and I'd never know.
Perhaps the most embarrassing part of this is that I'll watch the Mexican equivalent of Sesame Street-with no fewer than 6 women in mini skirts and halter tops that wouldn't pass the dress code at Hooters-for a minimum of 5 minutes. It's hella funny that on Univision it doesn't matter if it's a raunchy soap opera or a toothpaste commercial, or an educational program directed at 4-7 year old kids-they all have women who could just as likely be auditioning for an E40 video.
