As I roamed around the house yesterday, I just couldn’t figure out what was wrong.
My coffee didn’t taste the same.
Things looked different.
Food tasted weird.
Then I figured it out.
Over the past two years, I had become a “Television News election junkie” and suddenly my main line was turned off cold turkey.
The election news had become the background white-noise of my day. I was never parked in front of the tube, but it was there, in the shadows of my existence.
But yesterday, gone was the mud-slinging, the finger-pointing, the “just-discovered” information and all the reporters had their happy faces on.
Oh sure they were scuttle-butting about who would be appointed to “this” and who would take over “that”, but…um… excuse me while I yawn and snooze. BORING.
It just wasn’t the same.
Back to cooking.
