How many conversations pass you by because of your phone? We live in a world where friends, loved ones can sit side-by-side and never talk at all. And when we do talk, we show the phone and say, “Did you see this?” I am beginning to hate my phone and my husband’s phone. During commercials we used to talk, now he picks up his phone, checking for the latest update. My daughter texts me from her room instead of coming downstairs. It’s a mad, mad world we live in.
