And then I, who was in charge of the laptop because it was on my lap, started clicking on a couple of other funny videos that weren't as funny. And then I said, "What should I look up now?" because I was enjoying our cozy couch time.***
Then I actually said, "What else do they have?" because I am so very cool.
I clicked on a few things and then watched an Adele video because we saw her on the Grammy's**** and I liked her a lot.*****
And then I threw up my hands. "I don't know what else to look at," I said.
"You're not very good at this, are you?" he asked.
I admit I'm not. Just like I get bored on the internet. And shopping. I go in, get what I want, and then leave. Want to see a funny Louis C.K. bit? Open it, watch, laugh hysterically, move on. Want to check my amazon sales? In and out baby, with an announcement of the day's number. Need a new pair of yoga pants? Hello Target, how are you doing and gotta go!
I'm afraid of learning to like YouTube stuff, or the mighty internets for that matter. I can waste plenty of time on a good day without that kind of distraction. I have books to write! And Mary Kay sales to make! And TV to watch!****** And... and... and...
So, sorry, YouTube. I will not be your friend. I'm sure there's someone else out there who will pay attention to you.
*Ha ha ha. In some families, the recommend the newest literary work by Sir Stuffypants or seeing the latest pretentious documentary by Baron von Betterthanyou. We recommend videos of cats playing Fruit Ninja.**
**Fruit Ninja is a really fun game!
***I'm such a GIRL sometimes. Ugh.
****Um, that Nicki Minaj girl? SO not a fan.
*****You have to remember that I don't actually listen to music. Ever. (Except when The Chef is driving.) Audiobooks in the car and on my iPod. Always. And I mean ALWAYS.
******You're thinking I should say "And papers to grade!" but you'd be wrong. I don't bring that work home.
