Passion Party #161 - Anti-Social Media

When did "friend" become a verb?
When did staring at a computer screen become social?
When did we decide that "multi-tasking" is something to aspire to?
As anyone who talks on the cell phone while driving can tell you,
multi-tasking really means doing a half-assed job at numerous things simultaneously.

Last night I went out with a friend I have known for 40 years.
We had a drink and went out to dinner in Chinatown.
We talked
For hours
He is not a verb.
It was a wonderful hang.
It was social, not "social-media"
It felt great.
