Set N' Think

The young couple had two small children with them at the restaurant, and as I labored through my chicken fingers I watched the relationship of the family.  It was different than most I see these days.  There was no travel bag full of toys, no blizzard of techno-bliss, nor were the kids fussing or whining.  All four people at the table, two in their adulthood, two under 7 years, were talking and enjoying one another, physically and psychically touching each other, learning about each other, with relatively equal participation.

    David, I’m not sure advocating people to just sit around and think is such a good idea. What would we do without cell phone elbow or computer games or Ipods or TV in our SUV or Twitter or Facebook? If thinking became popular, we could easily fall prey to another Albert Einstein or Stephen Hawking. Have you not even considered the Law of Unintended Consequences? What the hell is the matter with you?

    I don’t know what came over me, Bobby J. We’d discuss it in more depth, but I’s almost time for The View. Gotta run.

  • Carl

    I’m not sure I want people to think. Their all plotting against me anyway.

  • Marylou

    Hey, Carl. You’re right. We are all plotting against you. As soon as our field operatives get your home adress, you’re toast.

  • Bobby J.

    Don’t worry, Carl. The field operatives are all girls. You can hear ’em coming a mile away.

    I think those people had the right idea with the thinking time. I believe we keep our kids too occupied. That focases them on the external influences, and can make them even more likely to be pushed around by peer pressure and keep them from becoming their own person. Now how do I get my girls to sit still?

  • Bobby J.

    Try some Duct tape.

    I swear I always thought that was “duck” tape.

  • Bobby J.

    It is. Duck string doesn’t work worth a damn.

    Bobby, why don’t you get a site of your own and stop trying to take this one over?
