WhatsApp creates so much noise. Happy Easter. Thanks. Heart moji.  Same to you. Repeat similar sequence for all in the group.

Except me.

Do I add to the noise? Do I say Happy Easter or shall I be the only one who says nothing?

Everyone will think I’m dour and no fun.

Or do I add my bit, however inauthentic?  After all, what do I care about Easter? And I’m working so it makes no difference to me.

So many pings. They disturb me. But I haven’t added my happy wishes for an Easter I don’t care about and that disturbs me too.

Inauthentic or dour? What should I be?
