Respecting personal space. Particularly MY personal space.

I think it might be time to review some personal space guidelines. Some of the people I run into just don’t seem to have a solid grasp on the concept.

1. If I don’t know you, don’t hug me. If I do know you, please limit the hugging to once a month.
2. If we are talking, do not punctuate your statements by touching or slugging me on the arm.
3. Meeting you by chance with little possibility of ever having contact with you again in the future does not meet my requirements of a Facebook friend.
4. If I am the only one sitting in a restaurant, do not sit in the booth next to mine, facing me, unless you plan on starting up a conversation.
5, If you walk into the restroom and I am the only person currently using one of the stalls, do not pick the stall right next to mine. If you do end up picking the stall next to me, do not strike up a conversation.

Let’s have coffee!

For some unknown reason, perhaps just boredom, I decided to scroll ahead in the calendar on my iPhone. After a few minutes of some serious scrolling, I was surprised to have made  it to the year 3000. 

This seemed amazing to me. There was no practical use in me having a calendar for the year 3000, but it was cool. Now I just had to know, how far does the iPhone calendar go into the future? So I began scrolling . . . . And scrolling. 

After about fifteen minutes of solid scrolling, a show about The Loch Ness Monster came on the Discovery channel and I lost interest in scrolling. But before I quit, I made an appointment for February 9th at 2:00 pm to have coffee with a friend . . . . In the year 13854. Anyone care to join me? I mean, if you don’t have anything else planned.
