Here but not really


Everybody has a phone jammed onto their ear. My grandson came over yesterday and was almost in panic mode. He instantly started looking under my sofa cushions. He had lost his I-pod and thought he might have left it here. He normally has the Ipod things stuck in each ear and his cell phone is ringing constantly with this far out crazy ring tone, and then he has to text back to them. All the time I am waiting for him to get untangled from all his wires and gadgets so I can talk to him. By now he wants to know if he can get on my computer. He is 16 and I love him unconditionally.
But I am sort of like the lady in the cartoon. He is here, but not really.

sometimes you just gotta unplug, whether it is from the phone, the computer, the iPod or the TV. Read a book maybe, except now I read an electronic book :)

That seems to be the trend. I look into my daughter's room and there she is sitting in front of 2 computer screen, a TV and texting on the phone! If I want to talk to her I have to instant message her.
