The Ties That Bind
Sure, they have their good points--who wants to be stranded on a highway without a cell phone?! Not me. But I've been stranded--pre cell phones--and fortunately someone always stopped to help. So, we survived without them.
I can't help but crack up a little when I go to a restaurant and everyone at a table is staring at their cell phones or, worse, talking on one. Is that not the epitome of rudeness?
One of these days, I plan to write a play where all of the characters do nothing but communicate through cell phones. Seriously. I'm not joking. And people in the audience will be encouraged to text, crank up their ring tones, and generally gab on their cell phones during the performance. Life imitating art. Or something like that.
That's got Tony Award written all over it. Broadway, here I come.
