Daily Prompt: Call Me, Maybe
Describe your relationship with your phone. Is it your lifeline, a buzzing nuisance, or something in between?
Stories are fun and today I’m gonna tell mine like a first grade picture book.
Once upon a time, my phone and I had a love/hate relationship.
You see to answer the question at hand, I’ll have to say that my phone IS NOT my life line. I was once a textaholic. Yes, I openly admit it. Let’s use our imaginations for a bit, instead of it saying ‘Bob’, it would say ‘Mel’ :)
My friends and I would be talking and we began to notice that our attention span was being affected by these little devices we carry around. We were having half of a conversation with the person in front of us and a full conversation with the person we were texting. Needless to say, attention spans were becoming a thing of the past.
It was beginning to feel like a burden instead of a tool for communication. I stepped away from the phone for a few months and made people call me at home or not reach me at all. It was very freeing. I’m now reconnected but I am really asking myself why I did that since I always leave my cell phone at home now. It’s just very freeing not to carry it on me anymore. :) My cell phone and I have become strangers and now he’s just somebody that I used to know. The End.
Your Friend Mel
