PLEASE PRESS ONE

“I put my phone in airplane mode but it’s not flying.”

Something I recently learned about having patience.  If you listen to an entire robocall there is generally an option at the end to press a certain number to be removed from their call list.

Those calls about class action suits and candidates during an election can be winnowed with just a bit of patience.  Which would be good practice for having patience with yourself.  (Nice segue, Grandma!)  Yes, this is going to be a book recommendation.

The other day, while at the library to pick up a book I requested, the librarian made a recommendation.  Actually, she saw me looking at a newly acquired audio book and said, “That’s a really good book” or “I really enjoyed that book” or something like that.  I’m not a stickler for details.  Because our librarian is a mild mannered mother and grandmother who never raises her voice, except to sing praises of literary achievements, I checked out her recommendation.

The book “has been working on correcting our delusional expectations for ourselves and for the world.”  The information in this book is “backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes”.  And you’re dying to know the title of the book.  It’s “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k” by Mark Mason.

FAQ – Grandma, have you gone off the deep end!  FGA – Which time?

If you can get past the “language” in this book, the ideas are rather thought provoking.  Something else to think about for those who cannot get past the language … our children are being mowed down in schools with assault rifles and four-letter words are the problem with this world.  Really?

Loveya – The Grandma, calling out from the deep end.
