I am addicted to technology. I have to own the latest gizmo. I can spend a day on my computer and wonder where the time went. I know where this kid is coming from. Here he is at the barn dance. The kid is surrounded by live music, cheering, laughter, and dancing. What does he do? Why, the boy fires up the laptop and disappears into his own world. What else would you expect?
I do understand this kid. The difference is that when life starts taking place around me, I know when to turn things off and start participating. And, if I forget… I have a wife that doesn't!
