Nice To Meet You

Our First Date

There is never enough time in a day to tell people what we really want to say

When we see someone we really want to get to know

We do a quick hi in passing

A nod when we are in a hurry

A wave when they are at a distance

When we are on the cell phone

It use to be a friendly Hello

Now no time for that

I sent you my text

Did you get it ?

As the hours pass

I want to see you

Why are we becoming more distant than I ever thought possible

I thought technology was suppose to bring us together

Give us more time to do things more quickly

Freeing up time for the family and friends we don't see

Especially a new girlfriend

Who would of thought it would be just chatting on Facebook

A place where all your friends go

You don't have to meet and could say you did

You can tell everyone your every move

You have more time to stay close

As you type away on the keyboard you can feel the love

Just like a hug in person

Just not so personal

Not that touchy feely thing

I can reveal my darkest secrets

I can tell you my latest desires

I can share all my wants,dreams and wishes

But you won't catch me holding your hand

Giving you a big hug or a wonderful wet kiss

It is too late for that

Why not just xoxo for all the love that you need

We don't have to go out to lunch

I can grab a bite at home and tell you all about it

I am having left over spaghetti and meatballs

Do you want to join me ?

I thought it would be fun if we went for a walk ?

Why do that when we can talk

Don't you want to go see a movie or something ?

I can see all the movies right here right now on Netflicks

Why don't you come over ?

I got the book from the library you wanted to read

I forgot to tell you I already read it on my Barnes and Nobles Nook

How about coming over to my place and having some fun

No I already checked out You porn and then some

How about going to see a comedian for some laughs

I traveled to you tube and laughed all morning

You got paid yesterday and don't you have to go to the bank and pay some bills ?

No I have direct deposit and I made out my bills online

To save time

You have no food in the house

How about we do some food shopping ?

No I have Peapod and they are ringing the bell now

Well what do you want to do on our second date ?

I'm not sure but today was great !

Give me a call

No text me please

Oh no I misplaced my phone

Better yet send me an e-mail instead

Why not just go on facebook and we can have another exciting date

Wow that would be incredible !

I had so much fun

I can't wait till we get married and have children

I hope they are going to be as smart as you and me

"Peapod" has gone mainstream - thanks to you. Online grocery shopping is the next trend - online banking is already mainstream.

You never cease to surprise me. Rated it up - there is allot of wisdom in this. We marry when we see the wrong signals and you outlined those clearly.

GmaGoldie I have so much to say and sometimes only a few will listen.I had an idea. One of many I did long ago.I came up with a food shopping service for the elderly called Shop For U.It was a money maker but no one could see it and I didn't have the right backing.I was around before PeaPod and I have proof of it.They have done well me not so well.I have moved on to other dreams and keep thinking to try to find others who are interested in Dreams.More people are interested in going to the movies than making a movie.Having others do the shopping for them than working your butt off to please customers and make them happy.Until I find the right people my search continues.Thank GOD for the world wide web.I give credit to where its do.They did something I couldn't of done.But I had the idea first and I WILL TAKE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DO.My life is filld with endless adventure.Even as I speak my thoughts race forward on what I can dream up next.I hope we can continue to make both our dreams come true.I am always looking for a wonderful business to throw my two cents in.If you know anyone who has a market for a sock with a hole in it.I have thought of that one two.Thanks so much may your dreams flow at both ends!!!!!

Nellieanna I am glad I grew up when I did.I hardly used the phone and we always talked face to face.Even if we did nothing together we always spent it together.The future is here and many changes are happening.Look out world.Dim Flaxenwick I hope not.I just think it takes time to balance out.Sometimes we go to much one way just to go to much the other extreme.We just have to embrace change and enjoy the new wonders the best we can. Thank you both so much.

Yes - growing up when each of us did is/was our opportunity. But in the world picture, if we are still alive, we were born into an industrialized world bubbling with new inventions (such as the telephone, car, radio, etc, etc.) and rapidly moving into the electronic world bubbling with ever more and better "personal' gadgets. It's never been and never will be about how many or how few external things, but about how much and how full the internals are.

Nellieanna I couldn't agree with you more.The external stuff was and always will be just the frosting on the cake to me.Have a very inspiring day of sunshine.

i remember watching the men walk on the moon. When i saw all the miners rescued a week or two ago, the pictures of them down the mine somehow reminded me of that special day. If all the technology were used for the right reasons, this world would be so wonderful..... People like you, full of inspiration, and ideas, and thoughts, hopes and dreams, are not ten a penny, i hear you. You are so right about so many things, and i feel your heart is so in the right place. Keep Writing.
