Some of my friends can’t take their eyes off the TV whenever there is an IPL match going on. Is there a term for this?
(M Bhasker, Chennai)
When they watch their favourite programme on TV, some people manage to tune out the world. They are unaware of what is happening around them, and if you disturb them, they become angry. Such people are said to be ‘TV stoned’. Like a drug user, they are experiencing the effects of a drug — in this case, TV.
*Hema can’t talk to you right now. She is TV stoned.
Aye I know what you mean. Really pisses me off when i'm talking to someone and they get a text message and just stop conversing in order to reply to it...
