Sometimes I’m like, “Hey, I should hang out with Roger!”
But then I remember Roger is obnoxious and why are we even friends?
At least I hold real people at a higher priority than Tumblr.
At least I don’t automatically assume that because someone hasn’t texted me back but they’ve posted on Tumblr a handful of times that they’re actually not busy with other things. Because God forbid someone visits a social networking site for ten minutes in between making sweet potato casserole and wrapping Mother’s Day presents, but doesn’t text Roger back.
> Too busy to send a text message
> Not too busy to spend “thirty - fourty-five minutes” on Tumblr
It’s “forty”, you uncultured swine.
And maybe, because I have no friends—as you so helpfully point out all the time—I don’t check my phone as often as I check Tumblr. Maybe I saw your text briefly when I finally thought to check my phone, thought “Oh my God”, then thought “Well I’ve already said that once—I don’t want to say that again”, and then ran off to do something else WITH THE REAL PHYSICAL PEOPLE who were actually present within the same space as myself. One of whom I don’t see nearly as often as I’d like and was leaving that afternoon. Maybe I do, shockingly enough, actually have a life outside of you and Tumblr, a site I’ve cut way back on my usage of recently.
"do something else with the real physical people" until it was time to check Tumblr again.
My other favorite one was when you were “too busy” to allot time to literally just step outside your house for literally a moment for me but not too busy for Tumblr.
