How Did A Lubbock Man Enjoy The Most Stress-Free Weekend Ever?
In this busy, get up and go day and age, desperate times call for desperate measures. And not getting ANY calls for desperate measures, other otherwise, is freaking bliss.
It all started Saturday Morning, as I decided to pop into the office to get some work done early, when I noticed something peculiar about my cell phone. No matter what I tried, the buttons on the front would not respond. This means, since I use a pass code to keep things safe (and out of the hands of snoopy co-workers), that my phone was essentially, a brick.
The good news is that since I have insurance, it could be fixed for a small deductible. Bad news is...it would have to wait until Monday before someone can repair it. A whole weekend, without a cell phone. How could I manage without it?
How? I lived, darn it...I LIVED!!!
I walked outside, and experienced nature without feeling that I had to snap a photo of it for Instagram. I ran errands without feeling like I had to check my phone to see if I was missing something. I let my dog lick my face.
And they call it, puppy love...
Yes, I actually felt the stress of being connected 24/7 melt away. It was amazing. I smelled flowers and dead grass and bought Christmas decorations without feeling like I needed to post everything online. It was glorious. I highly recommend that everyone enjoy a digital detox from time to time.
Sure, I had a few moments of reflex where I reached into my back pocket for my phone, only to remember that it wasn't there. But those passed. And I continued on. The sky was all purple and there were people running everywhere. And I was able to party like it was 1999.
After all, I was dreaming when I wrote this, so sue me if I went too fast...
