Alternative Facts – News I Can Use

I believe someone was onto something when she coined the term “alternative facts.”

Alternative facts sounds iffy and I don’t feel comfortable advancing theories put forth by a woman who I believe has the basic intelligence of a fruit fly.

Aside from that, the basic concept may not be bad, but I believe  “selective truth” might be a better term.

This decision  helped my self esteem so much that I feel I must share my alternative facts  selective truths.

In my mind’s eye this is who I am:
mature female

Mature Female






Judging from other’s reactions, this is who they believe I am:
litle old lady

This is who I am when I go to purchase technical gadgets:

This is who the sales associates see:

In my heart I am this:

                                                                        Other drivers see this:

If you are feeling like you fell down the rabbit hole, try your own alternative facts selective truth.

Warning: Avoid consuming alcohol while practicing selective truths.
