I love my friends, all of them, including you!
Sometimes, though it’s real hard to get in contact with the people I care about. With my schedule, nowadays (see earlier post), their schedules, time differences, missed calls, mis-interpretations, etc it seems impossible to contact anybody anymore.
Today’s society puts too much focus on instant communication. Take my office for example, we use IM to ‘talk’ to other people in the office, very funnny.
It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? How is it that people communicated ‘back in the day’ (and by ‘back in the day’ I mean 1969 or even farther say the 1800s)? Did you know that when Neil Armstrong gave his famous speech on the moon that there was a 7-10 second delay from the time he first spoke to the time the world first heard those immortal words…. Not now. There’s almost instantaneous communication with the Space station thanks to satellites and such…
How about in the 1700s?? What was it? ‘One if by land, two if by sea.’ ala Paul Revere or something like that.
What I’m trying to say, I guess, is that it’s alright if you don’t call me right back. I know you still love me just the same. (That’s right… Everybody loves ‘The Bogus’).
Bear with me, will you? We shouldn’t expect instantaneous communication in this ‘microwave society’. Let’s embrace this time and the time we can share as friends. Let’s enjoy this more relaxed stance together.
Just call me back, and I’ll do the same. 🙂
