I love taking silly quizzes. What kind if cheese am I based on my selection of tapestry. This is important stuff to know and fill one’s time with. I have so many back-to-back meetings there are times I have to be reminded to go use the restroom. Too much information? Eh. We’ve all said something similar at some point. Even so, I manage to sneak in a silly quiz on Buzzfeed to just jolt myself out of meeting numbness.
This past week I decided to take a news quiz. I didn’t expect to do well since I was tied up in meetings everyday, all day. I watched about 10 to 15 minutes of news each morning before going into work. I haven’t dug deep on the news. I know New York has seen an uptick in crime, including feces throwing. I know the Ukraine situation is dire and a journalist was killed. I know former President Obama got covid. Oh, I also know that Kanye West is a creep. I’m wondering when the worldwide intervention will occur.
Anyway, I took a serious news quiz and not only did I pass, but I scored 100%. Not a single item wrong. I wondered how it was that I knew all these things that are occuring when the world when I’ve been trying to tune them out. It just may be that the world is so awful now that my curmudgeon, cynical self just would know what to expect of the world.
