Light. Phone.

Light. Phone.

The iPhone is a distracting gadget. There’s texting, Facebook and a dozen-odd games I keep on the thing. I’m constantly being notified that there is something new to look at, a new Instagram post, a new Twitter reply, a new email.

That sounds pretty neat, actually. Too bad I hate making phone calls.
