Is this a sign?

Is this a sign of brain disintegration or self-preservation asserting itself? Last night I had a choice between a news magazine and a Get Fuzzy comic collection. I read Get Fuzzy from cover to cover and could barely get out of bed on time this morning because I was up so late. So does this mean I am dumbing down by choosing a comic over reality, or wising up to the fact that reality is not all it’s cracked up to be?
