Last night when this came on the news Paul laughed and said “I’d like to see what you’d be like with no computer!” I turned to him and said “what the hell about you?” What about all your farms and your card playing?” We both LOVE the computer and it’s no secret.
What if you lost your Internet? What would you do? When this was on Good Question last night, we both kind of chuckled. If we lost our power and didn’t have the Internet, I’d be okay. If I know it’s going to be down for a little while for maintenance, I’m okay with that too as I know it’s going to happen so I just do other things. If I were going to go somewhere where there was no Internet, I’d still be fine. I’d miss it but I sure wouldn’t die. But I do like having it and wouldn’t want to go back to the days of not having it.
Some of the people were funny. One woman said she loved her Internet but if she didn’t have it anymore, her house would be clean. One man said if they didn’t have it, he and his wife may start talking to each other again. There were a lot of people who they interviewed and it was kind of humorous.
Back before we had it, I did pretty much the same things I do now. I read and knit. I spent time outside. I will admit that I’m online more than I’m not and I really enjoy the interaction with other people and I love looking things up and playing some of the games but I still read and knit and still do spend time outside and play Guitar Hero. Just not as much I guess.
As for husbands and wives taking. Paul and I are having a pretty good time doing the whole farming thing on Facebook and he’s on his and I’m on mine and we harvest for each other and stuff and before we had the Internet, he was sleeping on the couch and I’d be sitting there reading or knitting so for us, I think it gave us something fun to do together.
What about you? What all do you do online and would you miss it if you didn’t have it or do you wish we didn’t have the Internet at all?
