Man vs. Mammal

I was watching the news this morning & there was a story about Sea World trainers not being allowed in the water with killer whales after the death of a fellow trainer 4 years ago. One correspondent or someone who knows everything said "It's not if a killer whale will attack a trainer but when".  Uh, huh.  I don't believe for one second that the trainers are not aware that swimming around with a 20 foot, 4 ton mammal could cause more than a black eye.  Also note the name of the mammal - KILLER WHALE (do your homework people and watch Orca)No one would get in a car with SERIAL KILLER Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer after seeing a diagram of what they could do your body, right?  But, people do continue to sky dive, bungee jump or zip line through the jungle even after signing a waiver that equipment could fail leading to death. I think they call it kamikaze an adrenaline rush, right again?

The point is this - if the trainers have so much passion for a career of working with marine life in an entertainment setting, let them do it, pay to see them do it, but don't boo & hiss when they're pulled to the bottom of the pool for the grand finale.

My So Called Digital Life

Today I did the unthinkable - I deactivated my Facebook account.  It is one less thing I will feel the tugging need to check & surely with the 10 minutes gained by clicking "deactivate my account" my life will be more serene because now I can look at Pinterest (even more if that is possible). 

Since the purchase of my magical super duper celly my romantic relationship has suffered.  My manfriend and I don't communicate as much vocally as before. He and I sit in silence while he pushes his iPad and/or iPhone to the far digital limits they may reach and I view cuddly animals and recipes (that I will never attempt) via Pinterest.   We don't laugh at each other or with each other we just show the other one pictures we find on our electronic devices that might invoke a snicker. Even when there is the rare opportunity that we may sit on the couch together and the TV is on - one of us has a fancy gadget in our hands.  And in the car?  Forget it, it's like riding with a ghost. Yes, it is sad but it is only a sign of things to come. 

If any of you out there are gadgety literate but lonely, you are not alone and I know how bad it sucks.

*Double Super Sigh*

Between Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell possibly being the anti-christ...

& Danny Zuko possibly being a pole smoker...

the world as we know it has some serious issues.
