I miss the old n' days when communication was manual. If you wanted to say hello, you picked up the phone. If you wanted to catch up, the phone conversation was long and/or you went to lunch and coffee. If you applied for a job, you handed your resume to a real human being---not an e-mail address, and you shook the person's hand. Pay phones were everywhere, cell phones weren't hooked to you like a borg from Star Trek. You didn't check someone's facebook profile before you went on your first date. You didn't need to tweet that you were on the shitter or at second beach---what was twitter? You didn't text the person across from you at the dinner table.... in fact, using a cell phone while talking was fucken rude. What the hell as happened to us? Most of us now have opted to live behind a technological curtain. What would you do should technology fail you? Can you handle looking at someone in the face or listening to their voice anymore? Can you handle being seen?
