Day 3145: Headlines

Sometimes, in my Coping and Healing groups, I ask people this question: if there were a 24-hour cable news network devoted to reporting about you, what would the headlines be?

For ANN (Ann Network News), the top headline would be “New Cat Joan Spectacular Addition to Home.”

Of course, if my imaginary cable news network were a typical one, the headline might be “New cat infiltration causes chaos and conflict. Old cat asks ‘Why?’” That deceptive one is much more likely to increase viewership and sell more products.

Do you see headlines in my other images for today?

Another ANN headline might be “August 11 National Day: Ann asks ‘Why?’”

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “headlines.”

What would the headlines be for your personal 24-hour news network?

Here’s my final headline for today’s blog: “Ann Incredibly Grateful For Everything in Her Life, Including YOU.”

    Joan is an absolute sweetie! It’s nice to hear those little meows in the video too. I’d love to wake up to ANN headlines vs. most of the current news!

  4. Weird Al’s song is fun but I’m not sure it’s aged well, which reminds me of something George Carlin said about how he could, and was even tempted to, work really hard on jokes based on whatever was happening in the news but aimed for timeless jokes instead because he hated to throw anything away. I can understand that feeling.

  5. I am very much enjoying the anecdotes, photos and videos of Joan settling into your household.

  6. So happy Joan so such a good fit and life is in balance 💛🙏💛

  7. Headlines are that Joan is beautiful!

  8. Joan Spectacular is a great name for her ☺️💕☺️
