MyVu Solo Plus Personal Media Viewer

I Do, MyVu

I didn’t think that expanding the legal definition of marriage would particularly affect my life. How wrong I was.

I just never gave the issue much thought. As far as I was concerned, states could let whoever get married that they wanted to. Or not. Or whatever. Just don’t make me have to think about it. I got hockey games to watch, you know?

But then a couple of states passed laws expanding marriage rights. And almost immediately, I started to become aware of some new feelings stirring deep within me. Feelings I wanted to ignore. Feelings I tried to ignore. Feelings I could not ignore.

I desperately wanted to marry these MyVu MediaViewer Glasses.

I never would’ve felt this way before. But once the marriage door was thrown open, all bets were off. It wasn’t enough anymore to simply enjoy videos on my portable media player on the MediaViewer’s SolidOptex screen. I didn’t just want its stereo earbuds in my ears. I wanted its hand in matrimony. I mean, shouldn’t it have the right to visit me in the hospital?

I know, I know. It’s crazy. I don’t understand it myself. I can only assume that the doomsayers are right: once our society is no longer limited to the traditional man-woman definition of marriage, we will all become clinically insane, and indulge in decadence not seen since the fall of Sodom. How? Why? What kind of sense does that make? Don’t ask me. I’m crazy, remember?

And what’s even crazier is that MediaViewer and I are thinking about adding a third to our union: the MyVu cable for iPod and iPhone. Part of me says it’s sheer perversion, but another part of me really wants to use MediaViewer to watch videos on my iPhone. Who knew all my morals could be completely destroyed by a legislator or judge or two?

Speaking of the law, it remains illegal in all 50 states for a man to marry a pair of video goggles. I’m willing to move anywhere to make our love official. But frankly, I’m feeling pretty discouraged that I’ll ever walk down the aisle with my MyVu MediaViewer in any state.

Well, maybe Vermont.
