I’m sure we’ve all been pulled into some clickbait rabbit hole at one time or another.
It’s just so easy to do.
The other day, I found myself browsing through a Judy Dench photo gallery. This was right after I scrolled through a photo gallery of the royal family.
After a half hour, I finally checked myself, “What the heck am I doing? I don’t even care about this stuff.”
One of my favorite things to click on are those stupid quizzes.
You know the ones, “Select the condiments you’ve tried, and we’ll tell you how tall you are.”
I know that my answers will not actually shed any light on how tall I am.
But I want to take the quiz just to see how many of those condiments I have tried.
All of a sudden, I have a burning desire to know how my taste in condiments compares to the masses.
But again, why do I care? Don’t I have a million other, better things to do?
Over time, I’ve grown to feel a little guilty about this.
I could be cooking a nice meal, walking the dog, cleaning the house, exercising, practicing my flute, reading.
But instead, I’m selecting my final Earthly meal to find out what color my aura is.
As if selecting spaghetti and meatballs over a gyro can really help determine that.
I guess it’s all just an escape, even if just for a couple of senseless minutes.
It’s easy to get lost in scrolling, similar to how easy it is to get lost paging through a book of interior design ideas or winter stews.
