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.
