She then proceeds to tell me about the accidents, deaths, storms, and shootings.... At 5am.
Once again, I remind her (as politely as possible) that there is a reason I do not watch the news... And it is by choice that I don't watch it.
If you want to tell me that they have found a cure for cancer, or stopped all child abuse, or saved all the stray animals.... Fine, but the negative I can do without.
My mom is 82 and spends time flipping between local and world news. It is truly no wonder why old people get so cranky and ornery.... Especially when they watch the news!!!!
Turn on the Brady Bunch, Dick van Dyke, or even Phineas and Ferb.... And laugh & smile! It won't kill you!!!!!
