Case in point: last week. I developed a massive afternoon headache. It's happened before. My brain was sending me a sign that I was spending too much time reading, and too much time in front of a computer monitor. I had to get out for a while, so I decided to stroll around a local mall.
It was a nice trip. I saw a few people I know, and a found a couple decent sales.
As I walked around the mall and its stores, I was struck by the number people looking down at a smart phone, or holding a phone up to their ear.
It wasn't just kids. People my age, and older, had phones clutched in their hands.
I'm sure a few of those calls were important. The rest? The conversation could have waited.
I went to the mall to escape for a little while. The cell phone junkies were happy to remain captive.
