Memorable Wrecks :
I can see the headline now: TERRIBLE PILE UP IN CHICAGO, EXPECT WORSE IN TEXAS!
Most folk know we seldom watch TV. HOWEVER lately, we have had the TV on. I can watch about 15 minutes max, and over half ARE ads for medicines and cars.
Is everyone sick of ‘DOWNER’ headlines? I read with interest this headline:
“Power Restored in Texas, BUT problems continue to pile up!” Even with a positive statement, the negative MUST follow. The follow up could just as easily be positive too. i.e. ‘they are working on other problems!’
I am thinking if a reporter was a Doctor his diagnosis might be: “Your dog bite is healing nicely, but most likely you’re gonna die of Covid!”
OUCH, What am I saying? That is already happening. A doctor did the Covid test on Sherry. I was beside her and heard him say, “Even if this is negative, you could be positive tomorrow!”
When he said that, my mind asked me, 'then why the heck did we come here anyway?' Imma thinking he wanted a POSITIVE to get it over with. ;-)
How did we get so negative? I have noticed for years the concerned voices of news/weather reports of hurricanes when the reporter stands in the wind and tells everyone, "STAY INSIDE THIS IS A DANGEROUS STORM!" I knew the reporter was enjoying every minute of his national exposure and he had to make it sound the worst possible.
The big problem with that statement above is: BOYS, Many men & Maybe some girls, if it sounds dangerous, we have got to see if it is as bad as he said, we have enough sense to know he and a camera crew MUST be out there too, so it cannot be all that bad. LOL
I have never seen or watched a ‘Reality Show’ but if someone is left on a deserted island to survive and it is filmed, SOMEONE ELSE MUST BE THERE to record that, sorta like ‘Gilligan’s Island.’
Now I am smiling REMEMBERING an incident as our family flew thru the ‘Devil’s Triangle’ to Cuba. I looked out a window and pointed to a small island, saying to son Mark. “Wouldn’t it be fun if the plane crashed on that island and no one was hurt and we could live like Gilligan?”
“Yeah!” he said excitedly, just then we hit an ‘air pocket and dropped about 50’, “But not right now!” he quickly added and grabbed my arm.
I think the public must be tired of BAD NEWS! It seems when things are bad, some news reports must make it BADDER! (Is that a GOOD word?)
PS: Ok, unless something is posted today, Imma missing and wondering about MA! ( Just learned, She had some internet troubles)
Also it is still hard for me to believe but I have had NO PAIN in my arm and just uncomfortable on my chin. Thank God.
So you wanted a HOT dessert, So Tom ordered this for Myra!.
