Daily Prompt: Connect the Dots

Today’s daily prompt is called Connect the Dots and it asks;

Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.

Do you want to define uninteresting story? A lot of people find science stories uninteresting but I find them absolutely fascinating. A lot of people read stories about celebrity crap because they find it “interesting” when in reality it is a load of rubbish.

Also  I’m not sure you understand how newspapers and news sites work. They want people to read them, to buy them, to click on them, as a result they want stories that people find interesting. They want to grab people’s attention. They want to wow them. Why would they put in uninteresting stories that no one wants to read?

Because of this, this task is impossible.
