Another Wednesday, another late night ferrying Archie to soccer training and hanging out with my girl.

Remember that it is a phone, not a bloody lifeline

A 360-days musing......

This is the second week in a row I got to hang out with my girl Rissie. After dropping Archie off at Ballandean, we trekked up to Stanthorpe to catch up with a friend. I think there were about 4 red lights due to roadworks and we were late seeing Bronwen and late returning to Archie. Yet the only time that I used my phone was when Archie rang me to see where I was.

Before last week I would have picked up my phone at every red light. Yet I am making a conscientious effort to slap away that instinctive urge to pick up my phone. Reminding myself that it is a phone, not a bloody lifeline.

Today I learned how Rissie is dealing with early teen angst and the rollercoaster that is teen emotion. I also had the delight of watching her in Subway as she was served by a boy, she thought was cute. She was so awkward and possibly the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

I would have missed all that if I was staring into that device that is a phone.
