My friend Mark once explained to me that while he loved cats, he is not interested in seeing photos of his friend's cats. (I myself am generally up for any cat-viewing on offer.)
Last week, I had the realization that I don't care for viewing photos of strangers' children and grandchildren. I have a dear friend who whips out her phone photo album every time we get together . . . . I don't know those people, much less their descendents!
Now I realize that I have been in the habit of sharing photos of our part-time cat, Inky. In other words, I bore my friends with pictures of a stranger's cat. To everyone, I can only say "mea culpa."
