Cold Turkey Twitter or Selfies with Aunt Susie By Chris Prickett cprickett@anthemnews.com

reak out the smart phones, tablets and talkie watches… The holidays are here! Society has come to the point where, in your hand, you hold every single speck of knowledge that has been gleaned over the last 400 centuries… So why even bother to acknowledge grandpa when he flies in from Kenosha? I read something today (on the Internet, of course) that describes “Pinterest” as “a place to create boards of food I will never make, clothes I will never fit into, crafts I am too lazy to make, fun quotes I will never be witty enough to come up with on my own and home decor ideas I will never be able to afford.” Sounds about right. I’m not going to climb up on my soap box and rail against the evils of social media because, frankly, I’m currently using the box to support my dual 27inch monitors. And, I’m not one of those “back-in-my-day” types either. Well, not always. However, I do think we sometimes are guilty of some digitally

bad habits that are usually at the expense of our family, friends, and never-to-bemade holiday memories. I know for a fact the Pilgrims did not text at the first Thanksgiving and the Indians were kind enough to wait until after dessert to fire up the smoke signals. So, maybe a little discretion, huh? Make it a point to put together a list of fun things to do like card games, ping-pong, a little Turkey Bowl football, or anything else to keep your attention on your family and your fingers off the keyboard. I’m not saying go cold turkey. Maybe you can blend a little old with the new. How about you and another generation or two take a crack at making that strawberry rhubarb pie you pinned last month. Even if it turns out like crap, it’ll make for a great tweet! Let Aunt Agnes tell you the legendary tale of how mom threw up a half-pound of tater tots at the family reunion back in ‘74, and post her reaction on Facebook! In the end, just make sure those around you are as happy as you look in your selfies. io
