dinner with a friend.
the waitress is polite. efficient. the music is just right. no distractions to spending some good, quality time together.
but it's confusing… why is it your friend keeps staring at her lap? what's that unnatural glow?
could it be? she's texting while you are having a nice visit together?
what? she keeps doing it? and then manages to work into the conversation some of the stuff she's texting about?
has the art of being fully engaged gone by the wayside in favor of non-stop facebook and twitter? must we foursquare our every move?
egads. i sure hope not.
now the even harder question… how to tell this person that she needs to discipline herself to step away from the iphone. especially for one who is in a ministry capacity. fully engaging should come first. you can tweet about it later.
