friday word of the week: luddite

luddite

I’m just saying.  It sure was nice to get a letter in the mail.  To sit down, write a letter, and put a stamp on it.  I like talking to someone–a human–on the phone if I have a problem with my student loans, or cable, or phone, or whatever.  I don’t like talking to machines.  I miss going to movie rental places and perusing the aisles.  Life is easier when it’s smaller.  I like to see my friends in person, even if it means I lose 350 of them.  I need to see them, to hug them, and to look in their eyes instead of their text messages.

I know, I know.  There are a lot of great things about technology, and this freight train ain’t slowing down.

It’s just my attention span is already challenged.  And I wouldn’t mind opening my email and actually receiving some email that I don’t have to mark as “junk.”

I am who I am.  And I’m a luddite.
