If you came to our house, you’d think we were real smarties. We got The New York Times and The Economist everywhere. Seriously, there are piles of them. However, none of these are mine. So, sometimes when I hang out/have a longish conversation with The Mister and his friends or co-workers, I feel like a real dum dum. I recognize that it’s because we have different talents and interests, still I always leave feeling like I don’t know enough.
They talk a lot about politics and the news. I don’t watch the local news because I’m not at home at 5:00 p.m. or even 6:00 p.m. Additionally, I’m not a fan of bad puns and all of our stations seem to think they’re comedians. The national news is watched occasionally, but it’s usually from the DVR. So, it’s not really news anymore. I know the basics. North Korea needs to calm the heck down. Global Warming is real – I don’t care what anyone else says. Jay-Z and Mrs. Carter have been in Cuba and people are unhappy.
Therefore, I signed up for The Skimm. It’s free. It’s short. It’s what I read while getting ready in the morning. This was yesterday’s Skimm.
