I Virtually Have No Time For Reality
I recently acquired two twenty foot rows in a community garden. It's wonderful to contemplate all that I can plant in those rows. The drip irrigation is automatic three times a week. All I have to do is plant the seeds, remove the weeds, watch the garden grow and pick the plants in their time. Except that I don't have time for all of that. You see, I recently became Farm Town and Farmville farmers on Face Book. I have neighbors who depend on me to fertilize their crops and chase away their raccoons. I missed a few days tending to my gardens and my eggplant withered. I lost money getting rid of my shame. Who has time these days for life when pretend is so much fun.
