The Sunday Paper.
One of life's little joys, wouldn't you agree?
There's something soothing about sitting back and opening this weeks paper
overflowing with ads, circulars and the ever present coupons.
Sitting on the couch with the paper at the ready on your coffee table
screams to all who will listen
"this is my time."
I like to leave it on the table for a few minutes
while I look at it from a distance
and sip my freshly brewed coffee.
Oh, the anticipation!
Just ignore the fact that almost every bit of news I will read in this weekly periodical
is news I have heard in real time on cable news and the various news outlets on the internet.
It's the PROCESS of reading the paper that matters.
It's best to do this while still wearing slippers,
this re-enforces the fact that
"I'm here to read the paper...I will not be multi-tasking."
When I'm finished with the paper
I neatly put the paper back together.
Below is a photo of my Sunday paper after I read it.
It waits, neatly, for the next person to open the front page.
Below is a photo of the paper
WHEN MY WIFE IS FINISHED WITH IT.
It looks like she used it as a weapon to fend off burglars.
I've seen week old newspapers on a seat in the subway that looked more appealing.
When she's done with the paper it looks like she's potty training a puppy!
Anyway, there's no better way to start a Sunday than with perusing the paper.
