The “News”


February 17, 2020

Okay – before I begin – Welcome to my new readers! I am so glad you joined me on this journey of exploration and art. I am glad to have you here.

Now -here’s a story that is very funny for me but not so funny for the world outside my mind.

My renter, who is a political activist and newshound,  came home from work yesterday unhappy with me for not doing my part of the household chores “on time”, so she did what I have asked everyone in my life to please not do, she turned the “news” on the TV in the living room within earshot of me in the kitchen as I was doing the dishes. ( I have an open floor home) I’ve been silently observing this behavioral pattern where my renter feels increasingly emboldened and feeling entitled to bully me in my own home and appears to be slowly taking over possession of the household and its decision making. This behavior is coupled with a marked increase in her alcohol and drug consumption and I have a feeling this scenario is not going to end well for her.

***ADDENDUM: I evicted the renter and she moved out on March 6th. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.***

I am not sure what she expected would happen – but within a minute or so I began laughing really hard – because what I heard was pretty funny to me. Remember – I have NOT heard the news since January 11th – over a month now – and they were saying the SAME DAMN THINGS they were saying then! ALL THE SAME THINGS! 

I lost it completely and went into hysterical laughter – I mean – really? REALLY??? THE SAME THINGS? You folks have been listening to and watching the SAME THINGS FOR OVER A MONTH NOW?!?!?!?

It’s a wonder, no, it’s a MIRACLE that more people are not jumping off the roofs of skyscrapers, poking-out their eyes and ears with sharp objects and being carted away to mental wards by now.

Now, I know I have my detractors, people who feel I should not stick my head in the sand and who admonish me to PAY ATTENTION to the “NEWS” – But what I heard last night just flushed that argument down the toilet – what is “NEWS” about this? You’re all talking about the same thing you were talking about over a month ago. Doesn’t the word “news” imply that the information will be NEW?

Well, needless to say, I had a really good laugh and I came away from the experience feeling happily vindicated and extremely content.

As for “he who must not be named” – I will not be surprised if he is re-elected to a second term because EVERYONE is giving him their attention and energy. The people who love him give him their attention and energy and the people who hate him give him even MORE attention and energy. He’s like a Black Hole of Ultimate Narcissism – sucking in ALL the oxygen, attention and life force energy of this country.  It’s really kinda scary to watch …

… so I won’t.        *** insert more hysterical laughter ***

Until next time …
