If I Twittered

I don't Twitter. Nothing against Twitter, but I'm trying to spend less time on the computer, or on any other media related device for that matter. Which is why I also don't have a Facebook page (I spend too much time looking at Hubby's page.) There is also the learning curve factor. I would need to figure out how it works, and I'm not one with directions.

With that said, there are times when I think "if only I Twittered."

Take this past Tuesday. My Twitter box, or nest, or whatever it is called would have been Twitting every 10 minutes. It would go something like this:

Taking kids to a chamber music concert. Lord help me, and protect me if the audience turns against me and my noisy kids.
-----------------------------------------
Concert has begun, and the kids are enraptured by the music. We may make it the full hour.
-----------------------------------------
Scratch that. Harpsichordist just gave a V.E.R.Y. long description of the Baroque period. Can't fault him, being a historian and all, but the magic is lost.
-----------------------------------------
Pretty sure lady in front of us has no kids. Probably thinking "When I have kids ..." Yeah, been there, done that. Take notes now for a good laugh later.
-----------------------------------------
OK, there reaches a point when all you can do is laugh. Kids scrutching, yawning, stretching, lying on pew, on floor, on me. More stretching, more yawning.
-----------------------------------------
We are leaving after this last set of songs. Pretty sure my time in here, and in the parking lot, are about to run out.
-----------------------------------------
Crap! Those three songs were really short. Didn't even catch the pauses. She is already done and it is too late to sneak out.
-----------------------------------------
Sneak? HA! We are sitting in the front of the sanctuary.
-----------------------------------------
And GO! Making a dash for it.
-----------------------------------------
Did you kids like the concert? Reply: Yes, but it was boring.
