Here’s a highly annoying “I got sober” speech and you should too
Not sure what it was. I think the Kavanaugh thing
I was kind of like, WTF is the point of all of this?
It’s like people have gone collectively nuts
I found it entertaining for a while- way too long really
Then all of a sudden, it wasn’t
I liked how ridiculous trump was and how much he pissed people off
Then I was like, why does it matter that he’s pissing people off? Shouldn’t people ideally be not pissed off?
So I stopped reading about it. Stopped listening to NPR. I already didn’t watch TV
I also already didn’t talk to anyone about it outside of here
But oddly, when I started to stop caring, people started to want to have conversations with me about it
Like maybe I was putting out this aura of nonchalance
And I would just truthfully say, I have no idea
And everyone who I’d say this too would smile as if I’d said the exact right thing
But they’d still give me their opinion and I’d just say, that’s cool
And it is
It’s all fine
It’s sort of amazing how much people perceive this stuff to matter
It’s 99% noise
If you’re into it, that’s fine
But why are you into it?
Is it serving a purpose for you?
If it’s just entertainment, is the amount of energy you spend being entertained worth the payoff?
Do you find yourself preemptively categorizing people into people who would agree with you vs those who would not?
Is that a fair exchange for some entertainment?
Now I just stare out of windows
I’m thinking about acquiring a few turtleneck sweaters
I may take a mixed race mistress
I already have a twin fin, so I think this all fits
