There was a time, not long ago, when I was a news junkie dickhead.
I’d slavishly, religiously, watch and listen to the news on TV and radio and Mr. Internet. I yearned to learn what was going on in the world and how I felt about it. I knew I could puzzle out the world’s problems with enough information. I figured I’d try and find a balance so I’d watch the “left leaning” network news channels and listen to the “right leaning” radio talk shows.
But what happened was- I became a new junkie dickhead. And I grew angry at all of it.
Miss Carol wouldn’t talk to me about anything news related. She couldn’t, I was always certain I was always right.
And then, one dark early morning run out west on 58 I had an epiphany. *cue the angels chorus*
I realized that, not only couldn’t I do anything about the news stories, I wouldn’t and couldn’t even want to. So why listen? Why watch?
So I turned it all off.
Now I just live in my little happy world with my friends and family and I’m a happier person, because, honestly it’s all about my happiness that counts.
Right, Miss Carol?
