We’ve somehow convinced ourselves that we’re the exception. That unlike every empire before us, we won’t collapse in a fit of decadence and corruption, having squandered every noble ideal we were founded on.
So I forgot my tablet at a friend’s house last night and was too lazy to go get it today. This wasn’t really a big deal as I’ve got a perfectly functional desktop which can do anything the tablet can do (except a few walled gardens (like Snapchat) that I could conceivably run in an emulator if I so desired). Except one thing…
I can’t take it to bed with me, or on the couch, or wherever. I’ve realized what I really use it for: browsing the web in bed. Heck, I can’t even really lean back in the cheap recliner I use as a computer chair and still browse effectively.
So now I know anyway.
I thought I’d won the lottery,
That girl, she meant a lot to me,
But I was just too blind to see,
The breakdown of our fantasy.
She wouldn’t even lie to me,
To let me down more easily.
To appreciate your honesty,
Sometimes is just too much for me.
