The modern world

The scene: moominmolly and I are sitting side-by-side on the porch steps, both staring into our phones.

Neighbor dude: hey, you girls aren't sitting there texting each other, are you? I mean, just talk to each other! You're right there!

moominmolly: *puts up a hand* I'm not talking to her!

Me, simultaneously: I can't communicate with her!

Neighbor, laughing: I can see the hand! I'm staying out of this!
