I met my husband at the University where he teaches to take him to lunch. I got there early and sat in the common area waiting for his class to end. It was one of the sadest sights... instead of laughter and typical banter there were students sitting in the eerie silence texting each other...listening to Ipods or logging on to facebook. No personal interaction whatsoever. When we headed for the parking lot to leave, a girl was in front of us, looking at the ground and talking on her cell phone. She ran into a light pole, smacked her head and fell. Before we could help her, she got up and kept on talking...the beat goes on!
I'm an Old Broad and have not yet caught up with all the sophisication...my kids can't believe I don't know how to text, nor do I want to. Woe is me!
