I want to throw these questions out to you as I am heading out the door this morning; first, why do we have so many more friends on Facebook than we do in real life?
Also, when did it become the norm to walk around with our ears plugged? Why do we prefer having little plastic earbuds stuffed in our ears so that we can listen to our iPods and block out real conversation?
And finally, when did we stop letting our kids walk to school? Why do we have to have a government ministry create legislation forcing our kids to exercise for thirty minutes a day when in the past that exercise could have been obtained on the walk to school, a walk taken with real life friends (rather than Facebook friends)?
I will add more thoughts to this post later in the day so stay tuned. Or even better, add your comments. Why do we have more Facebook friends than real life friends? Why do we prefer iPods over real conversation, and why can’t our kids walk to school? Thoughts? All appropriate comments welcome…just no spammers!!
