SOURCE: Time magazine’s 2019 Person of the Year, Greta Thunberg, revealed that she will be taking a break over the holidays to rest from her global climate activism.
Look at Thumbum over here begging for a rest from trying to change the world. Softest TIME’s Person of the Year ever. As a former Person of the Year award winner I find this a slap in the face to all of us former winners. You think climate change is stopping because a 16 year old wants to take a couple of naps and enjoy the holidays? Nope sister. The climate works 24/7 365 churning out climate no matter what time of the day it is. Ice caps aren’t thinking, “Oh, Thumbum wants to eat some strudel and open some presents. I’ll stop melting until she’s ready to come back.” Nope, the ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. They don’t sleep. The dying polar bears are melting. They would love to sleep.
I’m on vacation right now Thumbum. I’m in California wine country five glasses of Cab Sauv deep. Just got done a wine tasting, thanks for asking. Don’t you think I’d love to take a rest from the blogging game? Rest my fingers for a couple hours? Tell my brain to take a night off? It’d be ideal. But the blog, similar to climate, doesn’t sleep. So I’m out here grinding, churning out 3,000 words, and you’re probably sitting by the fire singing Swedish House Mafia carols in your villain voice. Maybe you need a rest Thumbum, but rest is for the weak.
