A Portrait of Modern Living

Me in the kitchen with Bob the Wonder Computer, clicking away.

Mum in the dining room on her own, as yet unnamed, Wonder Computer, clicking away.

The two of us chatting while we wander down electronic pathways.

T in the living room using the Big Beast of a Desk Top, ignoring us and our girly chatter but watching a Marx Brothers movie on TV.

Bird playing with his toy laptop in the lving room (dubbed the little green Bob by me) and ignoring us all.

No one is more than a few feet from anyone else, but we are all in our own worlds.

I had to laugh.

Yes, on a few (rare) occasions recently when Billy and I were both home in the evening, we put the kids to bed and then sit cozy next to each other, each of us clicking away at a laptop. It feels all fun and comfortable at the time, but upon reflection it's really rather sad, isn't it? LOL.
