Close but Far.
The other night I witnessed another bizarre dining scenario.
At another table, I saw a man in his 20s, a woman in her 50s, and another woman in her 70s. I surmised three generations sat down to share a meal and conversation.
Well, they shared a meal, but almost immediately after consuming the food, all three pulled out what appeared to be hand-held video games.
All three simultaneously played out their fantasies on these devices while sharing tidbits like--"He always falls on that jump"; "Ouch, I didn't see him"; and the eloquent, "Uhhhgggg."
Sure glad they got together to share their lives over a repast.
