Make your social life simpler: blog

Don’t waste time catching your friends up on each minute detail of your life: just blog it. A few minutes of typing up the most salient events and thoughts of your day eliminates clutter from your social life. Yes, you, too can shave valuable seconds off your face-to-face interaction times with a simple blog.

Why, just the other day, I looked up an old friend’s blog. We were able to talk as if we’d never been apart as we easily referenced things in one another’s blogs. Had we ever mentioned these events to one another? No! We shaved seconds off our conversation time by establishing our common references with the machines in our individual homes.

With our ├╝ber-efficiency, we have entire minutes extra left to discuss the more important things of life. Like how we should spend more time together. Unfortunately, we’re far too busy blogging.*

*Some or, more accurately, just about all the details in this account are fictionalized and the names have been changed to protect the innocent. But since I didn’t include names here, I changed them only in my mind. I even changed my own name, just to protect me from myself. But since today is Tuesday, it doesn’t matter in the slightest.
