Daytime TV Hell
I'm back at the car dealership, having my vehicle worked on. Consequently, I'm once again trapped in their waiting room with a TV on.
Years ago, a sports fan said that he assumed that if he turned on the TV off-season, it would just show an empty ballpark. That's how I feel about daytime TV: there should be nothing except a test signal until 5 pm. (Maybe 7 pm. You want news, listen to the radio or read a newspaper!)
But here I am in the waiting room. Of course, I don't need the reading matter the dealership provides - I have my laptop, and a book, with me. But I'm always on the lookout for new markets for my writing, so I always check out the magazines.
This dealership waiting room has: Landscape Management, Mushroom News, Western Horseman, and LP Gas ("The Propane Industry's Premier Information Source"). No lie!
I don't think I'll be writing for any of these magazines, since I don't know anything about these subjects.
Now excuse me, I have to learn how to teach my horse how to ground-tie. (Whatever that means.)
