Insomnia Thoughts: Chat Rooms
1:30 am and sleepless again. Today’s insomnia is brought to you by AOL.
I’m wondering whatever happened to the fabulous chat rooms found on dial up. Those glorious digital places where you could talk to random people at any hour of the day.
Where you never had to reveal anything about yourself except a [fake] name plus age and gender. And bra size if you were female and so inclined.
Where you could talk about your fears and needs and dreams to faceless people who never judged.
Where you could help a nameless stranger while getting help yourself.
Where you could talk dirty or clean and be whomever you needed to be that visit.
