This commercial explains so much about my life
Obviously, the reason I don't have crowds of pretty young people in my house for spontaneous parties is because I lack decent coverage for my phone. Now I feel bad- how many nights was I just sitting there at home, reading or watching tv, totally oblivious to the fact that between six and twenty good-looking partiers were standing right outside my door desperately trying to reach me on my phone to let me know that they were there waiting to gain entrance to my abode for a night of laughter, dancing, and watching me take more calls on my phone?
Now, I know what you're thinking- "hey, John, they could have just knocked." To which I reply, no they couldn't, because that's not what the hip young people qualified to be my friends do nowadays. Knocking is soooooo old school. What are you, forty or something? It's all about the connectivity, man.
Now, I know what you're thinking- "Um, ok, John- but you don't have a basement. You've got the top level of a duplex. Kind of hard to see how they couldn't reach you from your door 20 feet away..." To which I reply, "shut up, that's why."

It used to be soda pop that did that. I'm sort of ambivalent about Seinfeld but he did have something when he got testy about ads that suggested that fizzy, tooth-rotting sugar water was the key to instant social success. It's the same deal here.ReplyDelete
