Google plus did a real number on itself when it dumped its Facebook style of allowing you the option to know when other users were also on Google plus chat option. It must be a shot in the foot for Google plus users. Apparently, anyone can establish a video chat with you from out of the blue, which they clearly never explained to me.
I was minding my own business and looking at photos like I always do, when a strange man I didn’t know from the Middle East decided at that moment that he desperately needed to video chat with me here in hillbilly America. I refused to accept the video call and very rudely and with indeterminate power turned off this intrusive machine.
Laugh all you want at my behavior, but it did take me by surprise that someone out there actually wanted to establish some sort of contact with me. I live in my own head for weeks at a time, and it gets rather lonely and extremely crazy inside my head, sort of like the inside of Jeannie’s bottle in “I dream of Jeannie”
Living inside one’s ego is never a safe bet, and It only took me a few weeks to realize that I can’t live without my volunteer work, so I guess I am going back to organizational life and becoming involved once again in the anti-human trafficking league. It would be so easy to be Wonder Woman.
I guess the moral of this story would be to occasionally get off your computer and go live your life. It gets awful lonely being like a robot; I think you need to establish yourself as a human out there, somewhere. If I cannot find myself from within, I certainly will never find myself on the internet, unless it involves a purse or lotion from Niemen Marcus. What a waste of time.
