Out Of Touch

I don't Facebook.

I'm not LinkedIn to anything.

I don't know what Instagram is.

I'm not Pinterested.

There's a Vine growing on the fence in my backyard, but that's all.

Foursquare is a game we played in the street when I was a kid.

I am minus Google+.

MySpace is the limit of how close I'll let you get to me before I tell you to back off.

I have a flip phone. I can text if I can muster the endurance to push the buttons like 600 times to send "Hi". I can make phone calls, but don't very often.

The masses walking and driving around with eyes glued to nothing but their "smart" phones all day every day is one of the saddest things I've ever witnessed.

Never a truer word spoken.

I'm with ya, man. I carry a flip-phone when I'm out and about so I can be reached by those folks close to me if necessary. Cam in handy one day when I came across a senior citizen in distress. I was able to help her locate her ride.

Like you, I could text if I had to but why bother when I can make and receive calls.

Madness, I tell you. Madness!
