Everyone has something that they do on the weekends to relieve the stress of the work week and deal with the existential crisis that is life. For many, it’s drinking, and of course, that is how it should be. For those of you who blackout the world around you, literally and figuratively, here are the top 3 things you missed this weekend, delivered to you straight, by yours truly. Cue the water cooler convos.
1) Kim Kardashian-West was robbed at gunpoint. This one made me laugh for a solid 5 minutes. Kim was in a Paris mansion when 5 men dressed as police officers robbed her, and got away with $10 million in jewelry. I don’t know about you, but it was fairly recent when Yeezy took to the Twitterverse to claim his “broke-ness”, so I am a little concerned that she was carrying more money than anyone in my family combined has ever seen … in one ring.
2) Lebron James is #WithHer. Lebron hit a 3 pointer in his endorsement of Chillary Clinton this past weekend, writing an Op-Ed piece for a newspaper in Ohio. I didn’t know he knew how to do anything but flop, but apparently a high school education is enough to get you published in Ohio. Lebron James is a 12 Time All-Star, hated by our resident Office Sports Guy and apparently has clout in the political space.
3) Hurricane Matthew. Now, I have never experienced what it’s like to be in a Hurricane, mainly because living in a land locked state. Life in the plains of the US has afforded me the opportunity to survive through tornadoes, wildfires, and Donald Trump fans. Hurricane Matthew is about to unleash it’s ugly wrath onto the Caribbean, and is set as a Category 4. For perspective: Hurricane Katrina, the Category 5 that struck Louisiana during the Bush Administration (seriously, just so much fun to say) flooded New Orleans and displaced 400,000 people. I can only imagine what it might do to Haiti, who, FYI, is still recovering from the devastating earthquake in 2010. Thanks a lot Wyclef Jean.
