Why is everyone so busy?

As I attempt to reach out to old friends I find it difficult to get in touch with them.  Everyone claims to be so busy.  It makes me wonder just what the hell they are doing that is so important.  I look at my life and find myself unable to label myself as “busy”.

Yes, I do stuff but none of it is so important that I don’t have time for other people.  I like to keep my life simple and it boggles my mind to see other people running around like Raspberry Crazy Ants on a hot Texas summer sidewalk.  What are they doing and why are they doing it?

I wonder if I should feel sorry for them or for myself.  Are they screwed up or am I?  I can’t tell.
