Why I Prefer Text

Oh oh, telephone line, give me some time
I'm living in twilight
Jeff Lynne, ELO 

You go about living your life, trying hard to make ends meet but struggling at it. It feels like there's not enough time in the world to do all the things you need to do, and definitely not enough time in the world to do all the things you want to do. You make up for it: you get a dishwasher to help you in the kitchen, a Roomba to help you with the cleaning, and you forget what having a good night’s sleep is all about. Chances are, the last time you had one of those was in another life.
Then, out of nowhere, someone comes along – usually unexpectedly – and demands you you put aside everything you are doing and dedicate the next minutes of your life to them, unconditionally.

So yes, that’s what I think about phone calls.
Want to tell me something? Send me a message. Better yet, send me an encrypted message.
