“For crying out loud,” Mary exclaimed, “with all the crap that’s going on in the world – this is the most popular thing online?”
Surprised by her sudden outburst, “What?!”
“People are complaining that they don’t like some actress’s new haircut,” she stated with disgust. There was long pause before she added, “What’s wrong with people?”
“I don’t know,” was all I could say in return.
Later, I checked the mail, where I found the TV Guide. I very rarely read it, but Mary goes through it from cover-to-cover.
“There sure are a lot of futuristic shows anymore,” she commented as she flipped through the pages of the magazine.
I agreed with her.
“So,” Mary sighed, “Why do you think that is?”
“People want to escape to a place that’s worse than the world we’re living in,” I answered, “even if it’s jus’ for an hour at a time.”
We both agreed that at this rate — society’s doomed.
