Remember having to wait beside a very attached telephone in anticipation of BIG NEWS?
No, you probably don’t.
Good things used to come to those who waited.
Ain’t nobody got time for that now.
Immediate gratification. Is that too much to ask for?
There are many more. Because we need many more!
What if all of the first hundred ways to immediately inform us fails?!
I need to know…
When the baby is born! That the agent called! If you’re on your way home!
Did my team win? Is the cake ready? What time is the movie?
Is it raining? Snowing? Sleeting? Is the sun setting? How’s traffic?
Where you ate lunch! What you had! What it looked like!
I need to know it now.
And I’d better “like” it.
It’s ALL big news. All of it.
And those seconds between replies, texts, posts, and updates?
You’d think a LOT more would get accomplished considering there are no more wasted hours waiting by the phone.
But you wouldn’t think it for very long.
I’m going to need to get that.
