Boots Does Not Care That You Are Trying To Watch Avengers: Endgame On Cable TV

Me: Excuse me, sir.
Boots: Wot
Me: Move, please.
Boots: No
Me: Aw, c'mon.
Boots: Why are you even watching this, anyway?
Me: What do you mean
Boots: I mean, you've seen this movie a million times already.
Me: I know, but -
Boots: While you're watching this, there are tons of other shows and movies you haven't seen, yet claim to want to. I mean, have you checked your streaming queues lately?
Me: Right, I get your point, but sometimes I just want to veg out with something familiar.
Boots: If that's the case, then why are you watching this on cable?
Me: Um...
Boots: You do know you have Disney+, right?
Me: Yeah.
Boots: Then why aren't you watching this on that? It's commercial-free and you're already paying for the service.
Me: This is just easier since it's already on.
Boots: It takes literally four clicks of a remote to pull it up on your Fire stick.
Me: True, but there's just something communal about watching it on live cable TV. It's like, you're subconsciously aware that there are other people watching this at the same time you are.
Boots: Humans are so weird.
Me: We are. So could you scoot over, just a little?
Boots: Nah
