This just in from a friend in Florida. Such a gem of modern technological wisdom really needs to be shared:
WARNING for those on the East Coast:
As Hurricane Irene prepares to batter the East Coast, federal disaster officials warn that Internet, cell, and smart phone outages may force people to interact with other people for the first time in years. East coast residents must brace themselves for the horror of awkward silences and unwanted eye contact.
FEMA advises: “Be prepared. Write down possible topics to talk about in advance. Sports, the weather, where your home used to be....
Remember, a conversation is basically a series of Facebook updates strung together”
Thank you Gus.
