It starts out small. You can't leave your home without it because you will feel "out of touch". Have you noticed how many people just walk around holding their phone? Not talking or looking things up....just holding. You feel naked if you don't have it with you.
(I totally do this)
Next thing you know it's vital for capturing photos you just can't do without because you need to post them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. because people just need to see this stuff! Things like the meal you just ate, a pretty tree, clouds and earth from a plane, a good hair day, vacation sites, naked babies, feet, arm outstretched close ups of you and whoever you think is cool at the moment.
(note: you can find all these photos on my Instagram. Username: steele_happy).
You know it's bad when you can't go poo without your phone....cause pooing is just boring without playing a game! Sometimes you end up sitting on the pooper longer just to finish the game.
Now here is where this cell phone dependency gets scary. I have no idea what anyone's number is but my parents (they've had the same number since high school). If I get stranded in the middle of no where on my way home and I have no reception, but somehow I come across a payphone I can't call my husband to come get me or any of my friends and my parents don't know their numbers. Then bam! A blizzard will hit and I will freeze to death walking home!
I'll be too busy walking looking at my phone and a windowless van will pull up next to me and kidnap me. Bam!! I'm dead! Or I escape but the kidnapper was a rogue policeman so I can't call 911, but I don't know anyone's number so pretty much I'm dead again!!
Zombies attack and I lost my cell fighting them off, so I can't call the hubs to work out a meeting spot to get out of the city and he leaves without me and I'm alone facing zombies and I die cause no one can survive a Zombie Apocalypse alone! If only I had his number to call from a land-line to work out a meeting point!!
These thoughts cross my mind sometimes.
