Sitting in a restaurant I watch as two women greet one another as if they hadn’t been in contact for a very long time. I wasn’t eavesdropping, really… they were obviously excited to see one another and their conversation could’ve been heard by folks a lot farther from them than where I was seated.
Old lady #1: We really miss you at Scrabble! Have you been ill?
Old lady #2: Oh no! I’m addicted to Pinterest! I just don’t have time for anything else.
Me: Are you kidding me?!?!?! (Not said loudly enough that anyone other than Perry — who was still picking his hairy chin off the table — could hear me.)
I spend a ton of time on the computer… more than most I would guess. But what I do is primarily work related. Most of what I read online and follow are things that I need to keep up with and know reference business. I read the personal blog entries of two friends and check out Facebook briefly two or three times a day. I write a blog post when I think of something I want to share, and look at Pinterest maaaaybe once a week or so. I assumed that was about average. Isn’t it?
I really hope that you guys aren’t missing out on real life activities with real friends and family just to get recipes that no one will be around to eat. Or DIY craft ideas that no one will see even if you get offline long enough to make them.
Seriously, lady. Drink your coffee and go play Scrabble.
