I Practically Hate That Thing12:00 AM
... because I blog and am active on social media everyone around me assumes that I must always be on my phone or computer. to the contrary I rarely have my phone on me. often I forget it in my room and have to run back from my car or grab it. other times it is left by my bed side while I am out and about cooking or running errands. as a result I end up missing a lot of calls and replying late to text messages.
although I give this exact explanation to people, I have my doubts about how much they believe me. I had always assumed that everyone must think I am screening their calls or just plain ignoring them ... until a couple of weeks back, when by husband got locked out of the house, without his keys!
he called ... and called ... and called but I didn't answer my phone. I was in my closet. in my zone. organizing. after an hour I heard someone banging on the house door and that's when I got out to check what the havoc was all about!
I felt so bad. the poor guy was stuck outside. in the cold. and I was right at home but of no help. however, in hindsight, I feel that whole incident at least proved my innocence (in my own eyes!) - I really don't keep my phone around. I practically hate that thing, y'know?!
