Ever wonder, like I do, if people are talking to themselves?
Happens all the time. I’m out on a walk with Mom Peep and we see somebody walk by us and they’re talking a mile a minute (that’s an old expression, huh?). Anyway, this person is ALONE. There’s not a soul in sight.
Sigh. We look closer and discover they’re on some kind of headphone thing. Or ear pods. Or some crazy device that lets them talk and walk (or drive or eat or watch tv or type on the computer) all at the same time.
Crazy, huh? Mom Peep and me were talking about it the other day (well, she was talking, I was listening and nodding my furry head) about how years ago if you saw someone talking to themselves you wondered who in the world they were talking to.
Not anymore. Now Mom is startled (she shouldn’t be) when someone is talking loudly in the grocery store, or in line to buy tickets for a movie, or at the gas station buying gas and they’re on one of these:
Golly, times have changed, huh? And Mom Peep gave in to the trend. When she got her new Smart Phone it came with wireless earplug things that go around her neck and when she gets a call she plugs one of the ear buds into her ear and she talks just like that, without picking up her phone and carrying it around in her hand stuck up by her ear.
Ahhh….technology. I’m not surprised now when Mom walks around the house and talks out loud. She’s not always talking to me, but I look up anyway, just in case. And then if she’s not engaging with me, I go back to sleep.
So there you have it. New things in the world. What’s new in your world and have you learned to adapt? Has it come easy or is it hard for you?
Wiggles and woofs to you,
