I left the house without my Blackberry this morning, and I am going through withdrawals! Seriously, I keep looking over at the place where it usually sits on my desk and immediately experiencing a gnawing feeling in my gut. Keep in mind, 99% of the time when it’s used as a phone, I’m talking to my wife. But the Facebook, Twitter, ESPN, USA Today, etc. apps get me through lunch, and the music is essential for my late afternoon walk! What have I done?
I realize I’m coming off as a total tool right now, but that’s the power of addiction. It has total power over your level of public tooliness. I also realize I need help, and if I had my Blackberry, I’d call for it… or text for it… or Tweet for it… or send out a SOS to my FB Friends… Damn. You see how awesome the Blackberry is. I can do everything with it. Without it, I am just a sad and pathetic shell of a man who is lost without his crackberry.
