Hello and happy Friday Faves!
Unless I’m taking photos of my meals (like this week’s dinner of Thai chicken lettuce cups), I avoid having my phone at the table. And I REALLY hate it when others check their phones instead of focusing on what they’re eating. Or worse, ignoring the people they’re eating with.
Earlier this spring I talked about my need to disconnect from the virtual world that is literally taking over all our lives—just check this out. The mobile phone has become our newspaper, our phone book, our camera, our movie theater, our scrapbook, our Thomas Guide, our written note delivery system, our spur of the moment encyclopedia. I don’t need to tell you it’s entertainment at our fingertips. I look around and see people in restaurants, waiting in line, even while watching sporting events, and everyone is heads down, thumbs scrolling, ignoring the world happening around them.
And sorry friends, you can harp all you want on “kids these days,” but when was the last time you checked in with your own phone habits? Adults, the internet’s virtual voyeurs on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, are the worst offenders IMHO.continue to the recipe… about Friday Faves
