"The robot-kids are coming over and bringing along their non-robotic parental units. They're good kids, they don't say much or even look up much. They're watching their mobile phone screens and staying connected and texting and/or updating their statuses". . .

I could just send them a text message to get their attention but they're only sitting a few feet away from me, so I won't. I'll get their (fleeting) attention in a different way. They'll be so relieved not to need a fork nor knife, they can use one hand (one finger and one thumb) to grab a small piece of food and place it inside their mouths and chew and still have one hand free to stay "connected" and continue to "LOL" and "like" and "smiley"… Perhaps, they'll even take a "selfie" or "not-so-selfie" pic of their robot brunch and "share" it… Click, send,, grab food, place inside mouth, chew, swallow, click, click, click… ;)
