Wacky Tuesdays

Tuesdays are crazy for me. I’m out of the house by 7 am, I prep my courses until 9:30, then I teach 3 classes one after another with no breaks to speak of.

Then I rush home, answer the advising / the association / the union / the sorority related emails, pack up Klara’s dinner and ballet outfit, rush to the daycare, change Klara into ballet gear, drive her to the dance school while she eats her dinner in the backseat, stare stupidly and happily at a wall for the 30 minutes that the class lasts, and then drive her home. She is of course full of energy after the class and eager to have fun. N comes home after 9 pm on Tuesdays, so the evening routine is on me.

So in the midst of all this crazy rushing, I ask my device to tell me the news and it regales me with a story from the NYTimes where an individual endowed with extreme chirpiness informs the world that a border wall is a bad idea because “it promotes borders and divisions between people.” The idea that such smug cluelessness exists is hard to contemplate in and of itself. But having it inflicted on you in the midst of a very busy day is beyond aggravating.

Since when does “news” stand for “very simple-minded and aggressively ignorant people opining obnoxiously on issues completely beyond their meager powers of comprehension”?

    Wait, you have an Alexa/Siri/Google Assistant now?

        You do realized that you’re doomed now, don’t you? It’s tracking your every move and word, and will eventually send all of that evidence to the Deep State authorities.

        Klara and your readers will miss you.
