Sunday short and sweet
I know. I know. My posts have been running more like marathons rather than quick jogs. So here’s a break in the action.
Because I’m finding it tough to focus on my novel (the one that I’m writing, not the one that I’m reading), I decided to give up my Sunday writing gig over at Legends Undying. I posted my farewell today.
It’s not your typical “see you later” message. But the last thing you’d ever get from me is “typical” right? Check it out. It’s another AARP-inspired post. If they have henchmen, they’re gonna rev up their mobility scooters and come gunning for me. I’ll never hear them coming until they try to get off their scooters and their joints start cracking.
The other thing I wanted to share was that I recently subscribed the The New Yorker Magazine. It makes perfect sense.
1. I’m a New Yorker.
Well, okay, it was kind of impulsive. I thought that people would be impressed that I was reading something more highbrowerific than Oprah’s magazine and AARP’s newsletters. The problem is, they have very long articles. My attention span just isn’t what it used to be.
So I’m kind of the opposite of men who read Playboy for the articles. I’ve started to read The New Yorker Magazine for the pictures. Well, for the cartoons.
Unlike the typical “funnies” section of most newspapers, these make me chuckle or laugh out loud–at least the ones I understand. Some are too cerebral for me. I resent those. I mean it’s a cartoon. You shouldn’t have to be a member of Mensa to get it.
Anywho, I laughed at these and thought you might enjoy them too. They even have their own captions, so I just have to sit back and post them. How easy is that?
I hope you got a laugh, or at least a chuckle, from these. Laughter (and a short post) is good for the soul.
