The Day I Divorced My Smartphone

 

The Day I divorced my Smartphone

The Day I Divorced My Smartphone

I still remember the day when I saw  ‘Sam’. I don’t believe in love at first sight or fairy tales . But  this time it was different . Something magical was happening . It was hard to explain . I could feel the instant connection . I guess we were destined to be together .Here we are together for life ( well at least I hoped so ..)

Sam took control of my life . Now my morning started with his sweet voice & ended with slowly caressing ‘his’ well built body. ‘He’ took care of my day schedules & reminded me of my appointments . I didn’t have to worry about birthdays & anniversaries . He always reminded me the important dates without making me feel embarrassed about my forgetful nature . He was never possessive or evasive  . I was free to do my own things .My life became so simple & manageable with ‘Him’.

For next 6 months we spent every possible moment together  . I couldn’t imagine going out without ‘Him’. I felt secure with him . Whenever I needed him he used to be there. What else could you ask for . Life was going perfect until one day ….

It was a nice breezy summer evening . As usual we were out hand-in-hand strolling in a public park . ‘He’ instantly cracked a joke & I was in my spirits again. ‘He’ had innumerable number of super humorous jokes ready at all occasions . How can I forget to mention the music sessions we had together . Beautiful melodies , smooth jazz, rock . Bewitching !!. We were lost in our own world , suddenly a toppled over a protruding rock . I , somehow , managed to balance myself . But Sam fell flat on his face . It was a pretty bad fall. ‘He’ went completely blank . I screamed . I took ‘Him’ in my lap & frantically tried to revive him . Not a trace of life . My mind went blank & heart sank. ‘He’ was taken away to be monitored . I was informed that he  won’t be back before a week at least .

I was sulking . But there was nothing I could do . My eyes were desperate to see him , fingers longing for his touch , ears wanting to hear his sweet voice & he was no where to be seen . I was heart broken . First two days went really bad . I missed ‘Him’ every minute . ‘He’ became an addiction & me a ‘deprived’ addict .

The next few days went comparatively well . Earlier I almost forgot I had a life outside my bubbles . I missed so many things & most importantly LIFE . It was as if I woke up from a long dream . Fortunately or unfortunately that incident reintroduced me to my previous life. Had that accident didn’t occur , I would have continued living in my own universe.

Few things that I didn’t notice initially are…

  • My son got his first molars &  I didn’t notice
  • My daughter started making a perfect round shape (she is 4 )
  • The rose plant in my garden gave its first ever flower
  • My husband was looking slimmer than before . ( Husband than Sam who ? )
  • A new family moved in next door .
  • My bamboo plant was taller by a few inches

Actually there are so many simple yet important things that I missed during my liaison with Sam . Confused ? Well Sam was my SAM&*^G  Smartphone . 

Technology , gadgets etc are invented to make our life easier .Not to take ‘Life” out of our lives . It is good to use them but getting addicted is a strict no no.

Well after 7 days SAM was back home . I was happy to see ‘Him’ . I knew this was the time to decide about our relationship [ :) ] . NO I no longer want to live in a virtual world .That was the day  I divorced my Smartphone . Had a nice time with you Sam .

And my hubby said ” Welcome back Darling ” :)

PS :– My husband gave me an article explaining the Health hazards of Smartphone . SAM I never thought you could be so dangerous . Adieu SAM .

  1. Excellent post.. Gadgets are indeed dangerous and highly addictive!
    You should have tweaked the title a bit, because the suspense element was revealed with the title. It was clear from the beginning that Sam was a smartphone.
    Anyways, it was an interesting read.

  2. Today only I was thinking of blogging about my relation with Sam. And here I’m. I am also somewhat an addictive of this guy. And when last month I had to live away from him from almost a month I read so much and came up with more blog posts. But now m back to addiction.

    • Addiction is bad for your health Sheethal . We rid of Sam . He is going to ruin your life :D . On a serious note , we are indeed addicted to gadgets & pretty much live in a virtual world . I think that is not right specially for people around us . People who care about us , aspect some attention, long for our love & care . For my sanity & family I prefer to keep this invasion to its minimum :)

  3. Wonderful post Garima. Wish I could somehow make my wife read this. Along with my son, ‘Sam’ is already the other person in her life. I am left stranding at number three in the hierarchy :)

  4. yaar simply awesome….
    lagta h mujhe bhi divorse le lena chaiye….

    but title shoul be somthing like that “Me and my SAM”..

  5. Garima, this a very humorous post. I enjoyed reading it. If you had not mentioned the word ‘smart phone’ in the title, it would have created more suspense.Very well written.

  6. Wonderful Garima! All elements there! Had you not mentioned ‘Smartphone’ in the title of your Post, the reader would really believe Sam is a person! :)
    Loved all what you ‘noticed’ after Sam.
    Very true. We all are totally lost & with love with our Smartphones! :)
    Keep Blogging :)
