Joey's First Challenge

Good morning everybody.  I’d like to propose my first challenge to you all.  In the past few days, two people I know have said, “I need my (cell) phone.  Joey, I don’t know how you can not take yours to bed with you.”
Why should I?  If I’m gonna be making mad, sweet love to something, it won’t be a plastic rectangle with a glass screen.
Seriously, though, I don’t need my phone much.  Yeah, if my house phone dies, I might need to make a call, but, you know, 15-20 years ago, when there were no cell phones, we all did just fine.  Technology is a good thing, but let’s not get carried away.
I know people who literally have to check their phone every two minutes: over dinner, through a movie, at work, sitting on the toilet, during “rush hour” traffic… Really?  Why are they so addictive?  It’s a new generation of mindless slave/zombies.
So, basically, I’m challenging you to start simple.  Pick a time after reading this, put your cell phone down, and do Not pick it up, look at it, Anything for 15 minutes.  Tell me how you feel.

  1. Since we have a landline and a cell, I am not dependent on my cell phone! It is for emergency calls, and texting. It cannot even play solitaire! Stupid thing!
