The funnest morning.

There is a social network called Nextdoor and somehow I got connected to it and signed up for my neighborhood. Recently a young woman posted that she needed to interview people over 70 years of age for a graduate school (social work) project. I answered that I would be happy to talk to her. Hell, I would be happy to talk to ANYONE.

She called this morning and we chatted over Facetime. It was great and of course I probably babbled because – I never get to talk to anyone and I’m lonely. And I love to tawk. And tawk…

I think I may skew her data a bit because if her other respondents are from this part of the world then their lives were a whole helluva lot different from mine because, let’s face it, New York City is a whole helluva lot different from Virginia!

Anyway, anyway – there was a lot we didn’t discuss in that call, things that are important – but then I don’t know what the young woman’s focus is for her project.

Oh well, it was fun. And that’s the most important thing – Fun!

Okey dokey then – I deleted the paragraphs that referred to the whole phone number/Facetime thing. Y’all took that very personally, and your comments are very sweet in your declining the opportunity – I was kinda joking. And there is nothing stopping me from emailing (not even calling, God Forbid!) those folks who had my old number…

  1. Well, if you wanna have a call…let’s do it!! We can talk about all the stuff we disagree on. Hahaha! Okay…I will have to set that up on the Ipad. Send me your # in FB Messenger.

  2. Nothing personal, dear Grace. I just hate, loathe, despise talking on the phone. Add a video to it and I squirm and blood pressure rises and it’s not enjoyable for me at all. I grew up being told I’m to be seen and morning heard and have thusly over the years developed quite an insecurity for talking to people. 😦

      1. Okay – Don’t know if you are Lisa C. who I do know, or some other Lisa who I don’t know – and quite frankly I hate talking on the phone, my hand and my ear goes numb, amongst other things, but it turns out I absolutely loved Facetime. And, – like you have the time for idle conversation LOL

  3. That does sound like a fun project and I’m sure she enjoyed talking with you! I don’t have Facetime since I don’t have any Apple products – oh wait, I do have an iPod touch that might have it. Anyway, I’d love to Facetime with you if I could! I love to listen to you tawk!
