RE: How attached are you to your cell phone?
I have my cellphone on do not disturb about 90% of the time, so it doesn't interrupt me much. I try to remember to check my phone fairly frequently. Not, I hope, obsessively. However, I do have a minor panic attack if I realize that I've gone somewhere and my phone isn't with me.

It's a blessing and a curse. It's great having a phone because then you can keep up with everything. I have 25-30, minimum, appointments every week; without a cell phone and especially texting, I wouldn't be able to manage these well. But it's so easy to use a cell phone to close yourself off from human interaction. If I'm not careful, I find myself retreating to the phone instead of talking to people.

I talk to my girlfriend daily on it, use it.to keep touch with family and friends. Very different from when I was a city-dweller -- out here in the country, it's almost a necessity.

I use it for entertainment in work, essential communication, non essential communication. It's my watch, my camera, my music player and my torch. I have lots of private personal messages and pictures on here.

When I think I've lost my phone for a few seconds my adrenaline shoots through me like a bullet. I go into freak mode where I'll do anything possible to find it.

The only times that ever happens is when I've left my phone in my car by accident, whenever I'm outside my car I tend to check my phone is on me every few minutes because it's just instinct to do that now.

I could never get this iPhone 7 plus up my ass. Maybe a 4 if I was desperate.

Size doesn't seem to be a limiting factor. Especially for the women. We had one lady try to smuggle in her pet bird inside her vagina in a plastic bag. The officer doing the strip search saw the corner of the bag sticking out.


She should have let the bird's head stick out to breath.

I could make this into comedy gold, but I'll spare the women here. I'll leave at "talking pussy". Yes

I was genuinely speaking in regards to the bird's welfare.

I don't even put my fingers near Chewy's beak...just saying... No

Chewch is an African Grey.

Between kids and work I have mine all the time. Occasionally I'll go completely off networking (social media, email, phone, etc) and take a time out. Last year my phone broke and I took an extra few days before fixing it just because... that was so nice. It's a little weird that here in the future when the phone breaks it feels as good and refreshing as going on a vacation. Maybe I should do that soon again. Heart

Big birds like that can crack a Brazil nut and eat it. And pull a thumbnail off, if they look at it and think that it is food. I know a gal that that happened to. I have had it with predators in my life. They aren't going to exist in my house, no matter the number of legs/wings/alleged amount of investment experience. Dodgy

I'm another person who doesn't own a cell phone or a smart phone. Even our landline's ringer is turned off, and we screen all of our calls through the answering machine. I use an old laptop for the internet.
