Today I had an interesting call from a telemarketer. She wanted to add daily delivery to the weekend edition of the newspaper. Hoping to discourage her, I told her that the only reasons I get the paper are for the crossword puzzle in the magazine and the book review section. I also added that I don't have time to read the newspaper I do get and my book.
We then discussed the crossword puzzle which I said is my weekly exercise in humility. She also does crossword puzzles. Then we started discussing our favorite authors, Steve Berry, James Patterson, Linda Fairstein, etc. It was like talking to an old friend.
It was a nice conversation, but I didn't take daily delivery.
