Friday 55

Time to share that 55 word story with the G-Man.  Wishing you a happy weekend!



Sam glanced around the restaurant, feeling sad.

Diners talked, texted, or tweeted on cell phones,
ignoring their guests.

Senior citizens kept their distance,
the devices’ mechanical noises
making them wonder if hearing aids were going bad.

We look and don’t see.
Everyone talks.
No one listens.

If batteries fail,
will we remember
how conversation works?

I don't own a cell phone or a blackberry or an ipod...so I'm always the one trying to keep the conversation going. I also wonder if thumbs will become worn out nubs before too long! :)
