YES, the question was tongue in cheek...........after sitting thru another dinner with friends, where no one spoke to each other, and everyone was fiddling with their phones and sharing videoes and swapping meme's....and texting each other, across the table. Honestly, I don't know why I bother anymore. I am the only one at the table without a phone.
