Rory’s Morning Dawdler — 01/14/23

Rory, the king of questions, also known as the Autistic Composter, has come up with a new series of questions that he calls “The Morning Dawdler.” He poses four questions three times a week, questions he says are “inspired by life, humor, conversations and observations, town life, blog posts, writers, gardening, news stories, television, entertainment, and human curiosity, and so on.”

Here are Rory’s four morning dawdler questions for today.

What are your views on Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex’s published memoir ‘Spare’ and the media coverage supporting it – even if you haven’t read the book?

My views on Prince Harry are about the same as my views on the Kardashian clan. I couldn’t care less.

Is the glass half full or half empty for you?

I used to be an optimistic, glass half full type. These days, though, I’m not even a glass half empty type. To me, the glass is pretty much fully empty.

In your opinion – as individuals, do we matter and if so/not why?

Okay, you might notice a theme in my answers this morning. I’m not in a very good mood, and given what is going on in the world today, I’m not sure that anything matters anymore.

What mistakes do you make over and over?

Thinking that common sense, decency, compassion, dignity, scruples, and tolerance exist in politics.

      Yes. It’s raining so hard I’m half expecting to look out my window and see an ark filled with pairs of animals floating by.

    You’re allowed to be in a bad mood. Vent away

    Your answer on the last question is very valid.

    That thinking is perhaps too wishful.

    OK, before you go insane, turn off the news. The constant nonsense from the Prince of WhinyTown and talk of politics will both be there when you’ve gotten a nice break from it all.

    Politics is a stinking cesspool, and Harry is the Prince of Ungrateful Whiners. I’m sick of both.

    I don’t plan on reading the book, and I do wonder if the complaining is too much. However, given that these aren’t standard people but are major leftovers from world domination and decades of a gaslighting sort of prettiness… I accept Harry’s experience as relevant enough not to assume he should shut up. I don’t have to listen to him (and, as I said, I’m choosing not to buy or read the book unless perchance and against all odds somone gives it to me and wants to discuss it). Meanwhile, I thought he presented quite well on Colbert’s show (last week was it). What I have heard from him via video (on that show and from another interview) has been thoughtful.
