A rant: Why do print publications, magazines, put the text of articles on the left side? This makes reading awkward, hard to hold. They probably think ad placement on the right side is prime real estate. I don’t buy things or read ads because they are on the right page. I just don’t. I actually intentionally stopped buying magazines because of the cost about 5 years ago. They are even more expensive now, in fact I just paid $14.99 for a decorating magazine–it was a reward for making it through an icky biopsy and medical test (see below). I stopped subscribing to magazines because they don’t arrive on time. Who wants a magazine two weeks after it appears on the newstand or in the library? Or, in dumpsters? Which is where my dad finds magazines for free. We read, we re-recycle. We’re extra green. Recently I got a couple of magazines for free by subscription. It’s just discouraging to hurt my wrists holding a magazine so it can be read. Magazines should wise up. Just saying.
A whine: Speaking of reading small print, it would be swell if publications arranged their page layout for those of us who wear bifocals. Please put it low on the page, and in larger font.
Mostly good news: My biopsy results are normal except for the part where they aren’t but I have two options for a solution, which in the grand scheme of things, is easy peasy. Getting older means higher health maintenance. No, it’s intentional health maintenance. I have regrets about not caring more when I was younger and working at it, and taking advantage of the terrific medical care I had access to. My advice, go to the doctor. Be well.
Bonus: My daughter sent me the picture below after reading my teacup post of a few days ago. I love it!
