When I’m out walking the family dog there’s nothing I love more than listening to podcasts. However it’s common courtesy to say “Hi” or “Hello” to other dog walkers (although I’m quite the fan of just nodding, accompanied with a closed mouth smile). This tradition is exemplified the most with the elderly. I think about what my generation will be like when we are old, will we be more understanding of technology? My guessing is that there’ll be some other space age technology in 50 years. Kids walking about with VR headsets interacting with each other only in a virtual setting.
Back to the point though. Don’t try to start a conversation with me when I’m balls-deep in a murder mystery podcast.
