soooo, I don't answer my phone.
I don't even carry my phone on my body, actually.
Please don't take it personally when you call or send 7 text to me and get no reply until 3 days later.
Its me, not you. Really.
My reasonings for this are:
*phones are annoying
*i hardly have big enough pockets to carry a phone
*i lose phones
*i dont carry a purse unless i have to
*I'd rather spend my time paying attention to the people im actually sitting in the room with. Not sucked into my phone screen checking e mails, or texting people for pointless conversations. I like to live in the moment and i feel phones take that away from people. You lose yourself in cyborg text land and shut everyone and everything around you out.
I want my daughter to remember me as a mom who watched her dance around and be silly, who got on the floor with her to play, and even paint her nails once in awhile. even if its not important things she doing...she knows i think its the most important thing at that moment, not a text message.
So, there you have it.
Maybe you should put your phone down and walk out of the room for a day....go to the gas station, maybe a park, go wherever you like going with the people you love without the constant connection to all the nonsense of the outside world. then see how you feel.
its kind of like taking off a really uncomfortable bra and going au natural...freeing to say the very least. I bet you'll love it.
