I used to not think about the news I was consuming. I watched whatever, and of course, everything turned to the political. You know, the usual back and forth between political parties, each side calling the other side names, everybody acting crazy 👍
So, yeah, I didn’t think much about the news I watched.
Until there was a lion.
A mountain lion, that is. I took a look at the local news, and saw there was a mountain lion in someone’s garage not far from where I live. They grow to more than 8 feet in length. Average weight is 150 pounds. That’s almost the size of a female lion in sub-Saharan Africa!
I couldn’t find an image of a person standing next to a mountain lion with the lion still alive, but they’re about the size of a grown man but much more powerful than a man, obviously. Here’s a smaller one being escorted away:
Don’t try that at home ☝️ That thing is sedated.
I had to ask myself: Do I really need to know about the latest cancellation, or award shows, or political mud-slinging… or about lions prowling my streets!! 🤣
It was a bit of a wakeup call that I could tell you every dumb thing certain politicians used to say… but not whether I could run into a freaking lion outside my own door 😱
My priorities quickly changed. And that’s why I changed the news I watch! 😁 Local, local, local!
안녕! Bye! Ciao!
