Idle Hands


How co-dependent have we become as a society to our phones? PERSONALLY, it’s not my life line but it’s pretty darn close!!
Just the other day I went to a movie screening with Michael and the rules are, NO ELECTRONIC devices! Well, he had to step away for a moment (which seemed like forever because I didn’t have my phone) and interestingly enough I had no idea what to do or how to act!
It sounds silly, I know, BUT I didn’t know what to do with my hands, what or who to look at! I was tryiong not to stare and then I started to kind of look around, look up ( I looked so crazy) I didn’t want to start conversation with the people around me because frankly, I just didn’t want to talk to anyone. I started to think, if I had my phone I’d be playing Candy Crush right now! I would have an excuse not to stare or talk to people, I would have my hands occupied! The time Mike had been away from me would have seemed much shorter! So now I wonder, what in the world did I do before I had a smart phone or text messaging? OH YEAH! I had a TETRIS device thing, LOL
