Good point. That sort of thing doesn't phase me, so it didn't even register. OK, ignore Opening Up as suggested parent material. I haven't read a lot of the other books, but I trust their recommendation

While I agree that most people want the quick-internet-fix, I find that it's the opposite from people in my mom's generation. The internet, for them, is anything but quick. They prefer something they can hold in their hands. Of course, I'm completely stereotyping and probably being ageist. But sometimes, stereotypes exist for a reason...
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
