I am in Panera. I saw two friends meet, eat, socialize. They chatted happily while eating. They have now been sitting across from each other for maybe half an hour, silently texting other people.

Whhhhy. What is the point of meeting people for joint texting sessions? Or did they just get bored of each other? (Maybe they're texting each other some sordid secrets?)

This is making me feel like an old. (And I'm not even that old.)
