I haven’t tweeted once in my life, but I’m sick of hearing about it already. What once may have been the cool way of letting a hundred people know that you’re about to go mow your lawn now has the feel of a used-to-be-fresh means of communicating. So yesterday, like two-way pagers. And AOL.

Once in a while, when I’m out on the lawn, I’ll jump around and do a couple of things. Here’s a secret: The older you get, the more difficult it gets.
