Did you ever notice how much drinking goes on in tv series or movies? I wonder what the actors are drinking all that time, tea, grape juice, cranberry juice? And it’s not just the rich well to do people either. It’s everyone, especially wine of some kind. And there’s always the Russians and vodka, which could be water.
It doesn’t matter if the script calls for a celebration, party, a bar, a restaurant, or simply at home with dinner–every night? Are you kidding me? Drinking alone very popular, too. Who actually does this? Anyone, anyone? Bueller? Well Bueller, probably since by now he’s a disappointed middle aged loner. Which proves a point. . .why so much “instant I get home pull out the old bottle”? It’s like sex. . .no foreplay, no loving thoughts, just up against the wall in two seconds. What’s up with this? Instant gratification in all things, all the time.
Maybe it’s cell phones. We can’t live without being connected to them every second. Were they the start of all this instantaneous life style? People in deep serious conversation–like that’s going to happen–and buzz, phone absolutely has to be answered. Ever notice anyone by themselves or in a group out to dinner or anywhere really, not glued to their phones?
Maybe it’s the Internet. Everyone wants to blame the Internet for everything. It’s like, Google made me do it. Is there no self control anymore? Is everyone so afraid of Trump or global warming that they are desperate to find anything to numb them? Is it “1984” for real? What do you think?
