Things could be worse. You could hate your job. You could have no job. You could be homeless. You could be very sick. You could be sick and tired. You could be stuck on the side of the road. You could have a broken bone. You could have lost your keys. You could have lost your phone. What is the world coming to? I have lost my cell phone!
Some days I love my phone because it distracts me, but other days I wish cell phones hadn’t been invented. When I began teaching, I would walk into the faculty room after school, and it would be crackling with laughter and energy. Now I walk into the faculty room, and it’s quiet. It’s still full of people, but they’re checking their phones. I’m sad about that.
It’s just Monday.
