Family gatherings are strange events, and in these current times are even stranger than ever.
I have noticed lately that family gatherings have deteriorated into old(er) people staring at strange youths who spend all their time staring into portable communication devices, with varying emotions on their faces as the machines beep and whirr and as they punch buttons on these things.
Nobody seems to talk to the person next to each other any more
Is this the future? Or am I just being a really old fart?
