I know a post has been long overdue, and I admit, I’m lucky if anyone continues to read anything I say. So to push away from this semi-writer’s block I’m taking suggestions. What do you want me to address? I’ve had a few submissions, so I’m opening it up to everyone. Let me know!
I did something incredibly stupid this morning. Like every weekday morning, I got ready for work, walked my dog and then hopped in the car. Normally, I ride in silence with the windows down, enjoying the breeze and think about how the day will unfold. Unlike these normal days, this morning I turned the radio on. Why was this a stupid move? Because music is never played in the mornings. It’s always talking, and more talking. Well, I happened upon a local station which enjoys allowing callers to give them a name and number of someone that they want to essentially entrap in a “I caught you cheating” or “I slept with this guy the first night I met him and I’m wondering why he hasn’t called me back to go out again” public situation. Listening to the radio is like driving by a horrible accident I can’t stop looking at. The entire time I’m listening, I’m repulsed but thoroughly convinced that this cannot be real. Every time someone tells another scandalous story, I’m debating with my car whether this is all staged and fake. But even if these callers are actors, I know these stories are real. People have absolutely no shame anymore. They publicly discuss their sexual exploits, with full intimate detail. They glorify their promiscuity and adulterous behavior. What the (Bleep) has happened to society?
Summertime in Arizona sucks.
