Gripes

It’s interesting sometimes to see what inspires people- pithy words of wisdom, comeback stories, people overcoming the odds. Most of it does nothing for me. I find, in most instances, that the old wisdom quotes serve the purpose as effectively as anything else. Some of the more contemporary stuff is tinged with narcissistic overtones, a shallow, self-important vibe that turns me off.

I don’t respond to a tug at the heartstrings. And don’t get me started on these TV shows featuring overweight people or spoiled six-year olds or families with nineteen children whose parents smell a pay day and don’t mind exposing their lives for the benefit of a voyeuristic public.

Anything to make a buck and fill air time, I guess.
