A moody introverted sort, I feel wiped out by the end of most workdays, so talking on the phone can feel more like a stressy chore than mellow reconnecting.
I want to see just how long I can continue making people squirm and do double-takes every time my phone makes an appearance in public.

Somehow, I've become dependent on my smartphone. And yes, I do get nervous when I'm without it. Think of the email I'm missing, the breaking news I'm late on. The plans being made without me.
“I wish I could quit you,” you whisper to your computer, your computer phone, your computer phone pad, and your computer book pad phone table.
As much as I hate to pull this card, I need a partner, not a kid brother. Get a grown-up's phone, please.
