I told my granddaughter I was in love with Tab Hunter once…she said “Who?”. Sigh
Several years ago, I realised I was reading articles because they were there. Then I started looking at each with the thought “do I care?” and only read the articles that elicit a “yes.”
I recently noticed that there are a LOT of articles in the AARP publications that elicit a “yes.” And I realised, that’s because there are a few common topics that they can hit and get lots of eyes: medicare, having enough money, where to retire to, staying fit and healthy until you’re dead…. I skip the celebrity pap and the readers’ letters and as soon as I realise the other articles are all the same and all uninformative (“you should do this unless you’re like that, then you should do the other thing. It all depends”) I’ll start tossing them into the recycle bin.
Lost power a few days ago…no internet…no TV. Read an article on Liam Neeson in AARP, by battery powered lantern.
I have the same problem with current celebrities and pop culture references when I come upon them in crossword puzzle clues. Then it’s time to google.
