were caught up.png

With side hustles, and an unending deluge of new content on social media platforms, ‘phubbing’ (portmanteau of phone and snubbing) the new normal, even these fleeting social interactions may be a thing of the past. Even self service kiosks at the supermarket make the extent of our conversational input relegated to ‘It’s not scanning’ and ‘Unknown item in bagging area’. Now I am off to the gym (‘can you please get off the equipment with your phone’).

  1. I still prefer face to face conversation over coffee rather than using things like Facebook. Actually, I hate social media.

    1. You are preaching to the choir, Candice. I dropped Facebook in 2009. I dislike the facile and glib social aspect, devoid of the give and take of seeing and talking with human beings. I am only on Instagram which is a good fit for my sort of artwork, certainly not to post my accomplishments etc. My children are of the same mind but my wife….mmm work in progress?
