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.

I'm willing to give you my farms in Farm Town and Farmville, for nothing. Not only are they wasting a lot of my real time, they're making me lose my eyesight harvesting all those apple trees and planting all those sunflowers.
