Nose in our phones
Oh, what would we do without our phones?
Nose in them when we drive
When we walk
Glued to them when we sit and exhale
Some when we should be working
At sporting events….”Wait, what happened? I wasn’t watching!”
At concerts; we actually watch the concert we are physically at through our phone as we record it????
During class, on the bench
At weddings, funerals, bar mitzvahs
Nose in our phones at dinner with our spouses
While running with the bulls
With a man-eating grizzly bear behind us at 30 yards
Why are you texting now? Are you talking someone down from a ledge? Or can the, “Yo, sup,” message wait for a more appropriate time?
While waiting for the bus, the subway, a cab
As our first born is being delivered
During meetings, conferences, seminars, trainings
“I may not have a clue what was discussed, but, hey, the picture I posted of the stir fry I made got 88 Likes!”
In the middle of the grocery store
On stage while trying to play a guitar one-handed!
Chasing fictitious pocket monsters into traffic and off a cliff; this really happened
Dodging waves in the ocean
Mountain biking shortly before being airlifted off the mountain
During HIIT workouts
While giving the commencement speech at a college graduation
“Excuse me. Let me turn that off.”
Our noses were much more likeable and outgoing in the old days, before the cell phone made them dismissive recluses
