I’ve been thinking about the post “Texting While Biking is for Idiots” and I don’t like it. I thought it was funny at first but now it just seems glib and off-putting to me. What do you think?
I think that texting while driving and biking is tremendously dangerous and careless, but I don’t want to have antagonistic relationships with people. I’m not trying to push buttons in that way and would rather make friends than enemies.
You get invited to more potlucks and dance parties that way.
So I’m going to change the title of that post to “Texting While Biking is for the Birds” which may not be the most succinct, poetic, or accurate phrasing but it’s certainly more my speed than Idiots.
