being without a phone

in an age where in an instant

a message you want to convey

can be sent to the reciever

seconds after you think of it

is

more challenging that you’d know

unless you’ve been in the exact situation

meaning–

airplane mode because of vacation

terrible wifi in the country you’re visiting

and then a swim in the ocean

which you believe has corroded your phone

3  days before your birthday

while trying to make plans…

and so not having a phone

after all of these circumstances

is

so darn

hard.

p.s. FB and instant messenger on Instagram were my safe havens for communication on Monday. But, it’s truly difficult to send a clear message without knowing too many numbers by heart, and without interfering  with one’s daily schedule with a phone call. So, here’s to not having a phone and making the best out of it!
