Are you still there?

I am too. There, I mean, here.

I  think  this is the main reason we still write and send Christmas (or Hanukah or whatever) cards every year, just to reassure people that we are still on this planet and have a few marbles left to play with. It reminds me of a beer parlour game we used to play. One of the participants leaves the room and everyone has to guess who's  left.  It was remarkable how many people didn't know if the'd left.  It depended on how much beer they'd had.,  Well, you  had to be there - that was the point.  You had to be there.  Still do.  I am.  Here.
