On Receiving an Impersonal Text…But I Digress…

After reading Dominique Browning’s “I’m Too Old for This” in the New York Times Style section, I cheered.

“Take a pass on bad manners, on thoughtlessness, on unreliability, on carelessness and on all the other ways people distinguish themselves as unappealing specimens. Take a pass on your own unappealing behavior too: the pining, yearning, longing, and otherwise frittering away of valuable brainwaves that could be spent on Sudoku, or at least a jigsaw puzzle.”  (In my case, online Scrabble with the computer and Spider solitaire.)

I’m too old for this…
