Thoughts for you/us to ponder


#81

Talking to random strangers is not done anymore these days. Now it’s avoiding random strangers. :frowning:


#82

Or talking in general, it seems. A friend of mine told me that she sometimes texts her kids to “come have dinner” when they are all in the house together. Lol


#83

ok so I missed one, the talking tyo strangers that is, really weird how our time has changed!!


#84

Not at all what we were expecting on New Year’s Eve 2019!


#85

when they all are in the same area? wow! and weird, talking about communications here!


#86

Yep. These are different times we live in now. It’s so sad to see a family dining at a restaurant with mom, dad and the kids each on their cellphones. I think the art of conversation is no longer in practice. Nowadays, not only is there less conversation but also too many acronyms are in use to a point where you feel like you are learning a new language. I used to be a Patient Relations volunteer at a local hospital before Covid and one of my patients, an elderly lady, told me that she thought “lol” meant “lots of love”.


#87

Now I’m starting to wonder whether those kids might develop language issues if they hardly ever hear their mothertongue being spoken …

Btw, “lol” is also the Dutch word for “fun”. :wink:


#88

I also thought lol was lots of love. enjoy this quiz
