It’s early in the morning. Lying in bed, with the covers tucked snuggly all the way up to her nose, she reaches for her cell, checking for “most recent Trump tweets,” a recently acquired habit.
She ponders two choices. Is the world going to end today? Thusly, she will stay in this warm cozy place and sleep through it. Or, have his tweets gone undetected by the Gods of War?
Thusly, she will jump up and begin the day. She rises, warming a cup-o-something to wake up with Morning Joe, also a recently acquired habit. His usually snarky, lugubrious rancor, filled with irony, combined with humor seems more palatable these days than the sing-song-let’s see-what’s-trending-today morning network chit-chat. But today she is distracted by and can’t take her eyes off (or mind off) a moose packed spike of hair that has gone rogue from Joe’s luxurious mane.
She obsesses, “Why doesn’t someone take out the rogue?! Take the camera off that animated mug long enough to get a quick comb. Zoom in on a guest. Stop the rogue!”
So. Let’s see what’s trending today!
