This month’s Q&A question is “How do you touch base with friends these days?” One of the sample answers is “We often interact through online gaming.” I must admit, I don’t really like video games, and rarely play them. So, it seems weird to me that video games are a way of touching base with friends.

However, my nephew, who is a teenager, recently sold his Xbox and a bought a PS4. When I asked why, it was because his friends all use PS4s, and so if he wants to touch base with them, he needs to be using the same machine. He cannot connect with them by using an Xbox if they are using a PS4… I think I’ll stick with using the phone and message apps to touch base with friends!
