Lonely People

I was listening to NPR the other day….

What, you don’t think dragons listen to NPR? Hmmph. Shows what you know.

Anyway, they were talking about the epidemic of loneliness among middle-aged people. Even with all of these blogs and Facewhatsits and Pinwhos and Snapgiggles, people are talking to people all over the world, but not making friends with their neighbors any more. Old friendships fall away, outside interests are abandoned, and they just work, eat, watch TV and net-surf, sleep, repeat.

Wings would help. Then the wind would call them outside, and once outside flying feels so good that they’d be in good moods, and then everybody is more friendly! Wings make everything better.
