A while back Kate at Views and Mews by Coffee Kat asked the question, “Do you read newspapers?”
Well, when it comes to this topic I guess I am a dinosaur. I like the real newspaper. You know the one printed on paper that is delivered to your door early in the morning. Don’t get me wrong I love my computer and Nook but I still gotta have the morning paper.
Not that I always read it in the morning or actually read the whole thing. I have my way of perusing the news. I look at the front page headlines, then on page two is the weather, must look at that so I know how to dress. Then I look at the obituaries, not sure why I do this.
I remember making fun of my mother because she checked out the obituaries first thing. I didn’t understand the attraction. I still don’t understand and now I am the one doing it…first thing. Well, third thing. Maybe it is just an old thing. I didn’t get the habit until after I was fifty.
If it is a day I am not working, the comics are next, Dear Abby, then on to the puzzles. Crossword, Word Jumble, and Word Game…in that order, always.
Then I look at, not really read, the rest of the paper, except the Sports. I rarely, if ever, read the Sports pages.
And after all that I check out the sale brochures. The days I work just the first three get done in the morning the rest has to wait until afternoon.
I will be very unhappy if/when the day comes that I have to do all this on the computer or digital reader. I guess I would get used to it but that doesn’t mean I would like it.
Hasn’t this been the most interesting of boring posts you have read in days?!
Today, I think I need to get out more.
