There I am in the paper. #3

The week has flown by. So here is this weeks link to my column in The Feelgood supplement in The Irish Examiner.
This week the pullout quote was,

‘The other day, in a desperate attempt to detox, I placed my phone in a kitchen drawer. Who needs a phone 24/7?’

I hope you enjoy it.

    1. I’m actually really good when I’m away from home and don’t really miss it at all. It’s just the everyday routine kills me. I love having, using and checking my phone.
      Maybe I should go away more often. πŸ™‚

        1. Getting there jean but mortified if anyone says they read it. I am relaxing a lot more about the actual writing. It’s great to repost it here as I get no feedback otherwise and it’s impossible to critique yourself.

        2. Oh I know the ‘I read your piece’ bit down the town and the mortification. You just have to smile and get used to it. There’s a special kind of smile you can practice ~ a sort of thank you, please don’t say anymore!

        3. Haha. I mutt practice that. As opposed to my, “Yes that’s me but it’s a secret. Don’t talk about it” That leaves many a puzzled expression on their faces, which does make me smile. πŸ™‚

  1. I would fail the test too. Its never far away from my hand and I always have to look at it several times a minute… Just in case. LOL. One never knows, right!

    1. Haha. Yes the just in case thought. It’s ridiculous, we know it is, but we have to keep it close…just in case.
      Good to know I’m not the only one.

  2. Haha, well written Tric. One time a few years ago I left my phone at home by accident when I went to work. All day I was convinced I was missing all sorts of important messages! When I finally got home and rushed to phone, there was not a single message that day!

    1. Oh I think we all know that feeling. I’m not sure if I feel disappointed when I pick it up and see no message or just an eejit for thinking I was popular/needed? Can’t live without it though.
