If you’ve found yourself muttering “shut your mouth, Al Roker” at your television in the past few weeks, know that I am with you, sister.
I mean, seriously, is there an angle about Monday’s eclipse that hasn’t been covered in the news? I learned today that pets don’t need eclipse glasses because “pets know not to look at the sun.”
I am over this eclipse.
HOWEVER, I’m about to give you the BEST Friday afternoon eclipse-related gift. This will help you get through the next few hours.
Never miss a local story.
Go to Time magazine’s website (click here), and type in every single one of the ZIP codes you’ve ever lived in, then type in the former hometowns of all your co-workers who are now assembled around your computer because this is exciting stuff, then do your grandma’s hometown, then your ex-boyfriend’s hometown, then the girl you think your ex-boyfriend might be with now because you’ve been stalking him on Facebook and there are an AWFUL lot of photos of them together and guess what she’s not going to see all that much of the eclipse’s hometown and sit back and enjoy.
Time magazine has made a graphic that will show you how dark it will get in your town on Monday when the eclipse occurs and I have no idea why it is so thrilling to compare the difference in darkness between Bluffton and all the other towns people live in, but trust me ...
