Between errands today, I managed to make myself a simple but satisfying lunch. I whipped up the meal with whatever I had in the fridge. But isn’t that how most people eat? I did a little surfing and answered my emails as I ate my lunch. Nowadays, we never truly eat alone anymore. We are always connected. Is this good or bad?
